Crouch Shoots 71 In Second Round Of U.S. Amateur Championship
DENVER – Florida Southern junior men’s golfer Tim Crouch concluded his stay at the 112th United States Amateur Golf Championship here Tuesday by firing a one-over par 71 in the second round of stroke play qualifying at the CommonGround Golf Course.
Crouch, who shot a four-over par 74 in Monday’s first round at Cherry Hills Country Club, finished stroke play qualifying with a 36 hole score of 145 to finish in a tie with 18 other golfers for 82nd place overall.
The top 64 scores in stroke play qualifying advanced to four days of match play, which begins on Wednesday. With his 145, Crouch missed qualifying for match play by two shots as the projected cut for the tournament is two-over par 143. This year’s 112th U.S. Amateur Championship featured 312 golfers.
Crouch, who was named to the SSC Commissioner’s Honor Roll this past spring for the Moccasins, opened Tuesday’s second round by shooting a one-over par 37 on the front nine of the 7,378-yard CommonGround course, before firing an even-par 34 on the back nine. For the day, Crouch recorded three birdies, 12 pars, two bogeys and one double-bogey, which occurred on the par-4 No. 1 hole.
For the tournament, Crouch scored a two-over on the par 3 holes, while carding a three-over on the par 4 holes and shooting a one-under on the par 5 holes.
University of Alabama sophomore All-American Bobby Wyatt extended his first round lead on Tuesday as he fired a two-under 68 to push his 36 hole total to a nine-under-par 132. The 132 tied Wyatt for the lowest 36-hole stroke play score in U.S. Amateur history with Gregor Main (2011) and Hank Kim (1994). Cheng Tsung Pan and Jeff Osberg each posted 5-under par 65 scores to stand tied for second place after stroke play qualifying.
