new Missouri Amateur Champion.

Brooks Yungbluth, (St. Joseph) is back in the field this year, looking to improve upon his second
place finish last year at Dalhousie Golf Club (Cape Girardeau). Brad Nurski, (St. Joseph) also
returns to this years field, looking for his 3-peat, coming off back-to-back first place finishes at the
Missouri Amateur. Recently, Nurski was asked about his experience at the Missouri Amateur in past
years and said, “I always enjoy that week. Anytime you get the chance to play for a state title it’s
always fun.” Nurski also talked a little about his mindset going into the MO Am, and said, “My first
goal is playing well in stroke play, so I can move into match play, and not thinking about winning but
just trying to play well.”
