Paterson, who is the current point leader in the Austin Amateur Golf Rankings, has won numerous local titles including both the Central Texas Amateur and the Horseshoe Bay Invitational in 2015.
Paterson qualified for the U.S. Mid Amateur at Falconhead Golf Club and was the only player to record an under par round during the qualifying event.
Noonan, who is a three time Austin Men’s City Champion, has also won the Harvey Penick Invitational, the Firecracker Open and the Spring Championship at Morris Williams. He qualified for the U.S. Mid Am at Oak Hills Country Club with a one over par 72. His round included a triple bogey, three bogeys and five birdies. After making a triple and a bogey on the front nine, he rallied with four consecutive birdies on holes 9-12 to get back into contention. It was impressive comeback and showed a lot of determination.
Anna Morales, who played collegiate golf at Duke, has been the Women’s Club Champion at Austin Country Club on numerous occasions and plays some golf mixed with the duties of being a wife and mother of two boys. She has qualified for the U.S. Women’s Mid Am on numerous occasions.
