Two Sam Houston men's golfers have posted outstanding accomplishments this summer.

J. T. Taylor, a junior from Conroe, participated in 2012 U.S. Amateur at Cherry Hills Country Club, in Denver, Colorado. 

Taylor won the U.S. Amateur local qualifying with round of 69-71 in Houston and earned a spot into the championship. 

The winner of the U.S. Amateur receives spots into next year's Masters Tournament, U.S. Open, and British Open."

Albert Miner, a junior two-year letterman for the Kats, won the 2012 South Amateur Championship at River Ridge Golf Club in Sealy.

Miner, one of four members of the Sam Houston golf team in the field, began the final round two strokes out of the lead and alone in fourth place. A birdie on the opening par 5 first hole quickly gave Miner confidence as he rattled off pars over the next two holes. Another birdie on the par 3 fourth hole moved Miner to 5-under par for the tournament.

The Katy product finished his front nine with five pars to turn at 2-under par 33.

A third birdie on the par 5 tenth hole moved Miner to 6-under for the tournament. Miner's only blemish during the final round was a bogey on the par 4 thirteenth hole. He was able to counter that with a final birdie on the par 5 seventeenth hole. For the three day championship, Miner sat alone at the top with a 6-under par 207 (70-69-68).
