Barber, the 2018 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball champion, will be playing in his third U.S. Amateur. He made it to the Round of 32 in match play in 2017 at The Rivera Country Club. Barber won the 2018 Jones Cup, which earned him a bid to play in the 2018 RSM Classic on the PGA Tour as an amateur.
Winstead will be playing in his second-career U.S. Amateur. His only other appearance in 2018 saw him reach the Round of 32 at Pebble Beach Golf Links. Winstead has had a stellar summer on the amateur circuit by advancing to match play at the North and South Amateur, finishing tied for third at the Sunnehanna Amateur and advancing to match play at the Western Amateur.
