2020 Men’s Australian Master of the Amateurs Champion.

Mann family,

I just wanted to say thank you guys for putting on such a wonderful event. I thoroughly enjoyed my time down in Melbourne. From the wonderful golf course that was in top condition in Victoria Golf Club, to the fun Am-Am round, to meeting all the sponsors that made the event possible, pretty much every aspect of the event was great. It was certainly an experience that I won’t be forgetting anytime soon. I’m very happy that I made the decision to travel down to Australia for the event after all the good things I heard, and to experience those good things myself. I don’t get to play golf like it was presented at Victoria Golf Club much, if at all, in the States, so to also have that experience under my belt is something that I feel like is going to be a big asset moving forward in my career. Again, can’t thank you guys enough for all that you do to put together such a great event. Will definitely be telling my friends about the event and hopefully get a few Pepperdine guys to go under this coming year!

Thank you,
Sahith Theegala

Dear Angela,

I wanted to take the time to thank you, Peter, the entire Mann family, and everyone who helps make the Master of the Amateurs the tournament that it is. I was blown away by the dedication and hard work that you all put into the tournament and at the end of the day it really shows by setting itself apart from anything I’ve played in before. Unlike the majority of the tournaments that we play in, you go above and beyond to make each player there feel welcome and special. I only wish that all the events that us young amateur golfers play in were run the same way. I cannot thank you and the International Committee enough for giving me this once in a lifetime opportunity to play in the event and “live the dream”, it is something that I will never forget!

Best Regards,
Ricky Costello

Hi Angela,

Just writing to you and Peter to thank you for my acceptance in the event this year, it was my first year playing the The Master of the Amateurs and I undoubtedly enjoyed it, I thoroughly thought that it was such a well run event and made myself as a player and I’m sure everyone else feel special to be apart of it because it was so professionally ran and gave a professional event vibe to all the players. If given the opportunity would love to be able to play it next year and I think this event for Aussies is a massive stepping stone in comparing our games to the best amateurs in the world where a lot of players that have played in this event have gone onto great things.

So once again thanks heaps
Harrison Crowe

Sorry it’s late… but I’d just like to thankyou and your family for everything you guys did to make the tournament amazing! I was lucky enough so see a little of the behind the scene stuff and it’s actually so much more then I thought! I appreciate everything you guys do to give us the opportunity to play against some of the best players in the world and give us the experience of play in such a big event !!

Hi Angela,

It is slightly late, but better late than never. I just wanted to pass on a thank you to yourself and all of the selection board for AMOTA. I cannot express how amazing of an opportunity it was to play that tournament. It was a great experience and a great tournament.

Many thanks,
