In Tuesday’s sports section, we’ll have reports out of the start of high school football practice and MSU’s first day of camp, along with the news that Tupelo High School’s Fletcher Johnson won an USGA Sectional in Memphis on Monday and qualified for the U.S. Amateur.
Not the U.S. Junior Amateur, mind you, but the big-boy event – the won that Francis Ouimet won in 1914 (the year after he won the U.S. Open, the story of which got made into a pretty good movie) and that counts among its other winners such greats as Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus and that Tiger guy. Very cool.
