June 17, 2010


COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Incoming freshman, Sean Bosdosh (Clarksville, Md.), claimed the 89th Maryland Amateur title this past weekend on the Golf Course at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. He is now the youngest champion in Amateur history. Bosdosh turned 18 in May.

The runner-up in the event was former Terrapin Keith Unikel. Bosdosh had to challenge Unikel in extra holes in order to claim the crown.

Last season, Bosdosh claimed top-20 spots in all four International Junior Golf Tournaments in which he competed, including runner-up positions at the Duke University tournament (75) and Mountain Branch Golf Club tournament (73-71--144). He nabbed a fifth place finish at the IJGT Satellite at Penn Oaks Golf Club (75-74--149) and 19th place at the IJGT Tournament of Champions.

In 2008 at the Robert Riley Junior Open, he claimed top honors after carding a 147 (75-72). Bosdosh also claimed two titles in high school tournaments, first at the PVAC League Championship and again at the Washington Metro Team Championship.

Current members of the Maryland men's golf team, Tom Hanna III, Joey Rice and Will Wiseman also competed at the Maryland Amateur tournament.

Bosdosh, Hanna and Wiseman are all set to play in the 89th Maryland Open which takes place at the Manor Country Club July 12-14. Hanna has also qualified for the U.S. Public Links Championship which takes place in Greensboro, N.C., starting July 12.

In May, Hanna was the low qualifier at the Maryland Amateur/Open Qualifier tournament with a 69.
