Past Open and Amateur champion Max Greyserman earns Tour status

Past NJSGA Open, Amateur, Junior and Four-Ball champion Max Greyserman of Short Hills, a member of Crestmont Country Club, has earned the right to compete in the first eight events on the Tour in 2019.

Greyserman, the Duke University graduate who won the 2015 New Jersey State Golf Association Amateur Championship, the 2014 NJSGA Open, the 2014 NJSGA Four-Ball and the 2013 Junior, earned playing status on the Tour when he tied for 13th place in the final round of Final Stage of the Tour Qualifying Tournament on Dec. 9.

By placing in the range of 11th place to 40th place, Greyserman was guaranteed entry into the first eight of the 27-event 2019 Tour regular season. The Final Stage took place at the Whirlwind Golf Club (The Cattail and Devil’s Claw) in Chandler, Ariz.

Recent University of Virginia graduate Danny Walker captured medalist honors with a 27-under total of 261 for 72 holes. Norman Xiong, the NCAA Division 1 Player of the Year from the University of Oregon, was runner-up at 262. Mike Miller of Brewster, N.Y., tied for 16th place.


Greyserman shot 67-69-62-68 for a total of 22-under-par 266. The round of 62 was bogey free and included eight birdies. The event marked Greyserman’s first final-stage appearance. 

The 22-year-old competed this past summer on the Mackenzie Tour (PGA Tour Canada). He made five cuts in eight events and tied for 14th place on three occasions. In August, he played in the Met Open at Wykagyl where he tied for 21st place.
