Local golf

Whitby aims for another Amateur title: Caesar Rodney High grad Jay Whitby will be going after his record fourth straight Delaware Amateur title when the three-day, 72-hole golf tournament opens today at Odessa National in Townsend.

The first threesome tees off at 8 a.m. today with the last one slated to start at 12:20 p.m. Whitby is scheduled to tee off at 11:10 a.m.

A 31-year-old from Wyoming who now plays out of Rehoboth Beach Country Club, Whitby is trying to become the first player to win the event four years in a row.

Former standout Blaise Giroso won the Amateur 10 times — including eight titles in an 11-year period — but never won the tournament more than three straight years.

Dover’s Chris Wisler had a three-year streak of winning the Amateur from 1999-2001.
