GOLF: USGA releases U.S. Amateur tee times for Temple resident, Belton grad William Paysse
Temple resident and Belton graduate William Paysse has his tee times set for his first appearance in the U.S. Amateur Championship next week at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort on the Oregon coast in Bandon.
The 20-year-old Paysse, a redshirt freshman at Texas A&M, will begin the 36-hole stroke play portion of the U.S. Amateur at 1:57 p.m. Monday at Bandon Trails, followed by a round on the Bandon Dunes course at 9:44 a.m. CDT Tuesday. His playing partners for both rounds will be Henry Shimp of Charlotte, North Carolina and Ben Sigel of Deephaven, Minnesota.
After the 264-player field concludes stroke play, the low 64 players will advance to match play, which begins Wednesday and runs through Sunday at Bandon Dunes.
Paysse's caddie will be his older brother Andrew, who played four years of golf for A&M.
William Paysse was a PING honorable mention All-American for the 2019-20 season and was selected first-team all-Southeastern Conference. He's No. 205 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking.
