Michigan State's Bryce Baringer wins the 2024 Massachusetts Amateur Qualifier

Former Michigan State University All-American punter Bryce Baringer proved to be one of the best rookies in the NFL last season, but now he's also shown off his golf skills.

Last Saturday, Baringer took first place in the 2024 Massachusetts Amateur Qualifier with a final score of 69, finishing the tournament one stroke under par.

The win qualifies Baringer for the 2024 Massachusetts Amateur Championship, which takes place next month.

“I tried to qualify a couple of times when I was still living back home in Michigan and never made it,” Baringer told “I thought it might be worth another try — it might be cool. I found out the Massachusetts Amateur Championship was not far away in Framingham and that it was still during our break. It's just a good time for me to stay competitive and I had the full support of everyone. It was really cool.”

Baringer, selected in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots, was named to the 2023 NFL All-Rookie Team. He finished the season second in the league in total punts with 98 and total punting yards with 4,598.

Baringer played a major role in his four years with the Spartans. He was named a first-team All-American for the 2022 season after setting a program record for single-season punting yardage average at 49.0, which led the entire FBS. It was the second-best mark in conference history and the sixth-best in FBS history.
