Thanks for the good wishes everybody. Beyond thrilled to be going to US Amateur. #brookline.-- Max Adler (@MaxAdlerGD) July 22, 2013
The tournament in Brookline will mark Adler's first U.S. Amateur Championship, but it won't be his first USGA event. In 2010, he qualified for the U.S. Amateur Public Links with scores of 76-65 -- competing alongside some of the best amateurs in the country all while writing the game story for Golf Digest's sister publication, Golf World.
And so, Max, on behalf of everyone at Golf Digest, congratulations. Oh, and one more thing: Next time we go play, we're getting more strokes.
