Lamprecht, a two-time, first-team All-American and the 2024 Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year who graduated in May, is competing for the first time as a professional and is one of six former Yellow Jackets in the field at the Golf Club of Georgia, where 68 players are competing. Recent graduate Aidan Kramer, Korn Ferry Tour players Connor Howe, Chris Petefish and Ollie Schniederjans also are in the field along with 2019 U.S. Amateur champion and current LIV Golf Series member Andy Ogletree.
