    Michigan golfer Jerry Gunthorpe makes U.S. Senior Amateur final

    Michigan amateur athletes have made multiple successful runs at national tournaments in recent weeks, and Jerry Gunthorpe of Ovid hopes to add his name to the growing list.

    There was Valentine Rossi of Michigan State reaching the semifinals of the U.S. Women’s Amateur, James Piot of Canton and Michigan State winning the U.S. Amateur at Oakmont and, of course, the Taylor North Little League squad winning the Little League World Series.

    Gunthorpe has worked his way through the match play bracket of the U.S. Senior Amateur this week at Country Club of Detroit in Grosse Pointe Farms to reach the finals, set for Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. He won his quarterfinal match over Rusty Strawn of McDonough, New York, on Wednesday morning, 2-and-1, before defeating Dave Bunker of Canada, 3-and-1 in the afternoon.
