Andrew O’Leary Turns Pro
Another local has turned pro.
2019 Rhode Island Amateur champion Andrew O’Leary has turned professional and will be gearing up for Q-School in the fall.
O”Leary turned pro after graduating from Notre Dame.
He played in a Travelers Championship Monday Qualifier this week, in which he missed the cut by a few shots.
He tells GolfNewsRI that he will be playing in “mostly local stuff like state opens this summer and then Q School.”
O’Leary becomes the latest in a pretty good line of Rhode Islanders to turn pro.
Starting in 2020, Will Dickson, Davis Chatfield, Chris Francoeur and Patrick Welch have all joined the pro ranks over the last couple of years.
As mentioned, O’Leary won the Rhode Island Amateur in 2019, and then finished runner up in 2020 to Jamie Lukowicz and in 2021 to Bobby Leopold.
