CNJ staff

Clovis’ Travis Reid is scheduled to compete in the U.S. Amateur golf tournament, which begins on Monday at the Junior Olympic Club in San Francisco.

Reid, who graduated from Clovis High in 2005 and will be a junior this fall at New Mexico State, qualified for the event by winning a sectional tournament in late July at Mansfield, Texas.

The field will be pared from 156 to 64 by stroke play on the first two days of the tournament. Match play follows, with the first three days scheduled for The Golf Channel and the final two days (quarterfinals, semifinals and finals) on NBC.
