Tiger Golfers Enter Match Play at U.S. Amateur Championships

Jul 11, 2012

Midway, Utah - Playing against some of the toughest amatuer golfers in the country and against one of the longest and toughest courses available, senior Alex Edfort and sophomore Byron Meth made their way into match play at the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championships. The duo were two of the 64 golfers to make it into the match play rounds of the tournament as the field was whittled down over the course of two days of stroke play.

Edfort, who struggled on the opening day of the tournament, turned around his tournament on day two of the championships as he posted a -2, 69 to play his way just inside the cut line for match play. Edfort will play the top seeded James Erkenbeck for the first round of match play.

For Meth, a +1 in round one set the sophomore up for success and a chance to advance on to match play. After a +2 in round two, Meth made his way into the 64-man field where he drew the No. 16 seed and a familiar foe in BYU's Zachary Blair.

To follow the two Tigers scores in match play go to USGA.org.
