The 2018 US Mid-Am qualifier was held at Idaho Falls CC on August 20, 2018

Tanner Higham of Riverton, UT took home the lone qualifying spot in a playoff over Idaho Falls’ Jed Rammell.

On the first playoff hole, Higham made an 8-foot putt for birdie to secure the spot just after Rammell left a 12-foot putt for birdie just short.

Rammell, the first alternate, has since received a spot in the field at the 2018 U.S. Mid-Amateur held at Charlotte Country Club in Charlotte, NC on Sept 21-27.

There was a 5-player tie for the second alternate spot. After 3-holes, Michael Blackham secured the spot over Jason Graff and Dean Park.
