The Notebook

Virginia Tech’s Bryce Chalkley defeated two competitors, including teammate Mikey Moyers, in a playoff to claim the final spot out of the U.S. Amateur sectional qualifying at the Country Club of Petersburg Monday in Petersburg, Va.


The Hokie duo each shot five-under-par 67 in the morning round and even-par 72 in the afternoon round. Chalkley, Moyers, a rising junior from Stanardsville, Va., and Sam Beach entered a playoff. Chalkley secured the final spot in the national championship by converting a two-putt par from 10 feet at the second extra hole, the par-3 ninth.


Chalkley, a rising sophomore from Richmond, Va., who plays out of the Country Club of Petersburg, will join Nick Austin of Midlothian, Va., and Jeremy Wells of Hopewell, Va., as the qualifiers out of Petersburg. The trio will play in the 2011 U.S. Amateur Championship, to be played at Erin Hills in Erin, Wis., Aug. 22-28. Chalkley and Wells were teammates at St. Christopher’s School for two years.
