There was a great deal of excitement at Washtenaw Golf Club this morning as reigning US Amateur Champion James Piot showed up to play with the Havemeyer Trophy in tow.
Piot is a regular at Washtenaw, and so is familiar to staff and players. He spent a not inconsiderable amount of time signing autographs.
In 2015, Piot won the Michigan Junior Amateur title at Washtenaw Golf Club.
One of the assembled asked Piot if he was going back to Michigan State in the fall.
“Of course,” he said. “I wouldn’t miss it.”
