Today, Mitchell, Conner and Parker Rostowsky will pile into one car and drive to Jennings Mill Country Club in Watkinsville to compete in the U.S. Amateur qualifying tournament.
The brothers have been playing golf together for about 10 years, and they recently faced off at a U.S. Open local qualifier at Marietta Country Club, their home course.
But this moment might be hard to beat, especially if they all manage to qualify for the U.S. Amateur, which will take place at the Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina from Aug. 12-18.
Before they try to qualify, the brothers will talk about their approach to the course while traveling together from their lake house about 45 minutes from Jennings Mill. Lucky for the Rostowsky brothers, they will be on similar schedules. Parker tees off at 1:50, Mitchell at 2 and Conner at 2:20. Tournament staff was responsible for making the schedule.
They will play the first round today. The field will then be cut to the top 40% of players, plus ties for Tuesday’s second round. Other local players in the field include Marietta’s Jonathan Keppler, who won the Georgia Amateur last week, Marietta’s Matthew Hayes, Kennesaw State’s Brady Keran and Connor Coffee and Woodstock’s Brock Hoover.
“I think they put us all together because we’re brothers,” Conner said. “They assumed we would want to be close to each other.”
