The full-time firefighter from Brockton, Mass., earned his first U.S. Open start by winning the U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship last October at Capital City Club's Crabapple Course. He is the first Mid-Amateur champion to receive a U.S. Open exemption after the USGA announced last fall that the U.S. Mid-Amateur and U.S. Junior Amateur champions would be exempt into the field. Parziale defeated Josh Nelson in the championship match, 8 and 6. His victory also earned him an invitation into the 2018 Masters, where he missed the cut. He won the 2017 Massachusetts Amateur at Charles River Country Club. Parziale, a reinstated amateur, also is getting married in August. He played his college golf at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Fla.
