A former Mercer County Titan and Eastern Kentucky University golf alum recently qualified for the Georgia State Mid Amateur Championship.

Andrew Yeast, 28, a 2008 graduate of Mercer County High School, recently qualified for the Championship after posting a one over par round of 73 at the Governor’s Town Club in Atlanta.

The Championship will be held Friday-Sunday, May 17-19 at The River Club in Suwanee.

The Georgia State Mid-Amateur Championship is conducted by the Georgia State Golf Association and attracts many of the state’s top golfers aged 25 and older.

“I’ve had a goal each year I was eligible to play in the event,” said Yeast. “But due to scheduling, I have only tried to qualify twice. Amateur golf is tough in Georgia because there are so many good players to compete with. Plus, you can play year round so there really is never an offseason. I like that a lot because I’m such a golf nut.”
