Dylan Perry is through to the 2017 US Amateur Championship

Aberdeen's Dylan Perry has all but qualified for next month's US Amateur Championship at The Riviera Country Club in California after finishing in a tie for first in sectional qualifying early this morning (AEST).

The 22-year-old from the Vintage Golf Club in the Hunter Valley posted rounds of 71 and 65 for an eight-under-par 136 at the Benvenue Country Club in North Carolina.

Bad light stopped play with only a handful of players to complete their round, the closest to Perry yet to finish are Kiwi Ryan Chisnell and South Africa's Matt Saulez, a distant five shots behind with only a handful of holes left to play.

Perry, runner-up in The Amateur Championship at Royal St George's last month, was one of the early finishers and had to endure an almost two-hour wait to before realising he had locked away his place in the US Amateur which begins on August 14.

"It feels good mate. I played really solid out there this afternoon - blemish-free which is always nice," a delighted Perry said.

"I can't wait to get to Riviera and tee it up!"
