The 110th playing of the Clark's Pump-N-Shop KY Men’s Amateur Championship will be contested this year at the beautiful Traditions Golf Club from June 11 to June 13. The 54 holes, individual stroke play competition begins in the early hours tomorrow morning. Contestants will play Tuesday and Wednesday before the cut is made after Round 2 to the low 70 players and ties. The champion will receive a direct exemption into the final field for the 2024 US Amateur Championship to be held at Hazeltine National GC in Chaska, MN, August 12-18.  He will also earn an exemption into final stage qualifying for 2025. The runner up and third place finisher will receive exemption into final stage qualifying for 2025. 

The 2023 Championship was won by Justin Tereshko. Tereshko has returned for the chance to keep his title but will be met with some fierce competition from his playing partners, Eric King and Gary Backlund. In addition to this feature group, there are multiple strong pairings going off the tee for round one including:
