Augusta, Ga--While three local ladies are playing in the US Women's Amateur this week in Charleston, next week, we'll have four headed to Boston, Massachusetts for the US Amateur and a shot to play in the Masters.

Among them, Greyson Sigg. The incoming Georgia freshman won his qualifying event a couple of weeks ago. He's one of three from Augusta Country Club that'll make the trek north. Having some of his friends also in the field should take a little pressure off.

"You know I think it's good for all of us to be up there with each other at the same time." said Greyson Sigg "Knowing you have some good friends up there. I mean it's great for the club because this is obviously a very good club and it shows a lot about the golf course"

Sigg will be joined by Lee Knox and Chase Parker also from Augusta Country Club as well as North Augusta's Matt NeSmith. Top two get an invite to the Masters and Sigg has been asked about that but says lets not get ahead of ourselves with that.
