Six players in Nick Desai, Conor Casey, Jim Beadle, Mike Paduano, Harry Hagen and Andrew Guadagno recorded a round of 74 or better on Wednesday afternoon to advance to the championship, which will be held at Somerset Hills Country Club from June 8-10.

Desai, Casey and Beadle split medalist honors, notching a 2-over par 72 on the 6,279-yard course.

"I made a lot of solid three and four-foot par putts," said Beadle. "I didn't hit the ball great today, a little bit of breeze up, left myself a lot of testers and I think I achieved that pretty well."

The next qualifier for the 39th Mid-Amateur Championship is set for Wednesday, May 18 at Vineyard National Golf Course. Pairings and starting times can be found here.

"Somerset Hills is a gem in New Jersey and I think we're very fortunate to play some of the venues that we get to play," explained Beadle. "It's great to be back playing a lot of golf again and seeing some guys I haven't seen in a long time and the competition is always good."
