Patil won the walk-on tryout during his freshman year and solidified his spot on the team in 2002-03. Ameet, called "The Dream" by his teammates, played in nine rounds as a freshman in 2001-02. That year he shot 80-79 at the Rehoboth Beach Spring Invitational that year and finished 32nd and posted an 80 at the Wesley College Invitational to tie for eighth place. Ameet's top collegiate finish came at the 2002 Rehoboth Beach Fall Invitational where he shot a steady 75-76 to finish 10th, the best finish of any Colonial in the event.
Ameet took 2003-04 off but expects to return for 2004-05. The Dream is a big sports fan, in particular the Cleveland Browns, Cleveland Cavaliers and Ohio State.
