GLENVIEW, Ill. – Former Illinois All-American and 2016 Western Amateur champion Dylan Meyer joined Western Golf Association officials and other special guests Tuesday to preview the inaugural Evans Scholars Invitational at The Glen Club in Glenview, Illinois.

Meyer, who finished in the top 20 at last year’s U.S. Open, is expected to be in the field later this month when a field of golf’s future stars compete in the event, which marks a return to The Glen Club for the Tour, which contested the Bank of America Open at the course from 2002 through 2008.

Meyer said he expects to see Illini fans out in full force when the Evans Scholars Invitational begins on May 23.

“I am hoping to see a lot of people in orange and blue,” he said. “I've always played a little bit better with a bigger crowd. I'm really excited to have Illini fans come out and support not only myself, but this event and the Evans Scholars Foundation,” he said.

Entry to the Evans Scholars Invitational is complimentary, courtesy of a partnership with Edward Jones. All proceeds benefit the event’s sole charity, the Evans Scholars Foundation, which offers full tuition and housing scholarships to deserving caddies across the nation.
