SA Duo Miss Us Amateur Cut At Pebble Beach

New Zealand's Daniel Hillier was six-under after two rounds at the US Amateur in an impressive start to his big

The East Tennessee State sophomore made match play after firing a two-under-par 69 at Pebble Beach Golf Links on Tuesday.

Strafaci, a native of Davie, Fla., ranked 65 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, opened the championship Monday with a 1-under-par 71 at Spyglass Hill Golf Course to put himself solidly in position to advance.

When the cut was made for the top 64 players at 4-over par, Rebula, who is the nephew of four-time Major victor Ernie Els, found himself agonisingly one shot adrift after he carded rounds of 76 and 72 to finish on 5-over-par.

Williams College golfer Sam Goldenring continued his solid play in the second round of medal-play qualifying at the U.S. Amateur Championship at Pebble Beach, Calif. on Tuesday, but with the junior still on the course it looked like his effort to reach the 64-player match-play portion of the tournament was going to come up short.

The survivor of the playoff will face the 19-year-old Hillier in match play.

Every golfer in the 312-man field was looking for one of the coveted top-64 spots to make the cut and LSU's Jacob Bergeron landed right on the number, so he remains alive to make the match play bracket.


"The victor will face the tournament's No. 1 seed in match play".

Hillier is a two-time New Zealand Amateur Champion, a two-time NZ Junior Champion and an Australian Junior Champion and will set his sights on joining countryman Danny Lee as a US Amateur champion in five days' time.

FS1 will provide television coverage Wednesday through Friday, with the Fox network taking over coverage of the semifinals and finals Saturday and Sunday.

He will take on Zach Murray of Australia at 2:50 p.m. on Wednesday in the round of 64.

"They'll be divided into six foursomes and start the playoff at 9:30 a.m".
