The Australian earned his first U.S. Open start by winning the 2019 U.S. Mid-Amateur last September at Colorado Golf Club, in Parker, Colo. When he defeated Joseph Deraney in the 36-hole final, he became the first international player to win the U.S. Mid-Amateur, a championship for players 25 and older that dates to 1981. A native of Perth, Michel now resides in Melbourne. He attended the University of Melbourne, earning a Masters degree in mechanical engineering in 2017. Neither of his parents played golf; in fact his father, Ivor emigrated to Australia from communist Czechoslovakia in the 1960s. It was a neighbor who introduced Michel to golf. Growing up in Perth, he competed against the likes of 2016 U.S. Amateur champion Curtis Luck and 2013 U.S. Amateur runner-up Oliver Goss. He and Luck, who is a member of the Korn Ferry Tour, competed on the same high school team. Prior to winning the U.S. Mid-Amateur, Michel was a semifinalist in the 2018 South Australian Amateur and he finished sixth in the 2019 Australian Master of the Amateurs.
