Matias DominguezPONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida — Matias Dominguez, winner of the inaugural Latin America Amateur Championship, has a busy few weeks ahead of him. The 22-year-old Texas Tech University senior will play on a sponsor exemption as an amateur in the Web.com Tour’s Chile Classic next week (March 19-22) in his hometown of Santiago, Chile. Two weeks later (April 9-12), he will be in Augusta, Georgia, to compete in the Masters Tournament, a reward for winning the Latin America Amateur Championship in January.

“I was definitely excited to get the Chile Classic invitation,” Dominguez said. “It’s in my home country, which is really exciting. I’m sure it’s going to be a great experience and it’s going to be fun to be back home after winning the Latin America Amateur Championship. It’s been a crazy environment (in Chile) from what I’ve heard. And the Chile Classic will be my first official pro event. I’m excited to be playing with really good pro players in my hometown.
