‘US Amateur: Holy Cross graduate Steve Zychowski shoots par’

Worcester Telegram & Gazette

August 13th, 2013 by 

Hitting the links in competitive fashion, Steve Zychowski ’13 recently participated in the U.S. Amateur tournament, which began on Monday, August 12th at Charles River Country Club of Newton Centre, MA.

Notably, he is the only golfer from Holy Cross to have qualified for the U.S. Amateur in 35 years, the span of head men’s and women’s golf coach Bob Molt’s career. Of Molt, Zychowski has high praise, saying, “He understands my swing[.]” He then went on to explain how Molt adapted athletic training to Zychowski’s strengths, continuing, “[My swing isn’t] unorthodox, but it’s a little homemade.”

According to the Telegram & Gazette, Zychowski battled his way to an even par after the first two rounds, moving him into a tie for 19th place. “Shooting even par in this championship is never a bad thing,” he said, meaning he is in a promising position.

Originally from Mendham, N.J., Zychowski will continue to compete in the tournament, hopefully to successful results. This U.S. Amateur tournament marks the third he has participated in in the past four years.
