The fourth and final BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship Qualifier occurred on Monday with tee times beginning at 7:30 a.m. Thirty players finished ahead of the cut line, which was 4-over-par 76, and have secured invitations to the championship proper.

The 122nd BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship will take place June 13-15 and 18 at Philadelphia Country Club and Union League National Golf Club – Liberty Hill (Stroke-Play Qualifying only).

Leading the field was 27-year-old Stewart Rickenbach of Huntingdon Valley Country Club who bested the field with his 2-under-par 70. Rickenbach, who won the Francis X. Hussey Memorial in 2013 alongside his partner Andrew Carber, got his first birdie to arrive on his seventh hole before he carded three others on Nos. 9, 12 and 14. Bogeys on holes Nos. 2 and 18 were also captured during his round.

Closely following Rickenbach was Fieldstone Golf Club’s Joseph Tigani who finished with a 1-under-par 71. Three birdies on Nos. 5, 7, and 8 coupled with bogeys on Nos. 1 and 6 allowed him to shoot 1-under par on the front nine and card a back-nine score of even-par 36. Tigani will join Rickenbach as an #BMWPhillyAm invitee.

The BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship is GAP’s premier individual championship. Participants must first advance through a one day, 36-hole stroke-play qualifier to gain one of 32 available match play positions. Those who qualify for match play must advance through four matches in two days to reach the BMW Philadelphia Amateur Final, which is typically held on the Saturday of Father’s Day weekend. The winner receives the J. Wood Platt Trophy; its namesake holds a record-seven BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship titles.
