Isaiah Logue, who has won the last two York County Amateur golf championships, has qualified to compete in the most prestigious amateur golf event in the United States.

The Fairfield teen will play in the United States Amateur, set for Aug. 11-17 at the Atlanta Athletic Club's Highlands Course in Johns Creek, Ga.

The Liberty University recruit qualified for the U.S. Amateur by finishing tied for fourth at a qualifier at Stonewall Golf Club in Elverson in eastern Pennsylvania. The top six qualifiers at the event advanced to the U.S. Amateur.

The one-day qualifier featured 36 holes — 18 on the North Course and 18 on the Old Course. He shot 69 on the North Course and 71 on the Old Course for a 140 total.

The U.S. Amateur will feature two rounds of stroke play, with the top 64 players advancing to match play.

Among the former U.S. Amateur champions are Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Arnold Palmer and Bobby Jones.

Logue won two PIAA Class AA state championships while at Fairfield High School.
