UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. (AP) — Reigning NCAA champ Scott Langley needed extra holes for a second straight day to advance to the round of 16 at the U.S. Amateur.
Langley beat Augusta State’s Patrick Reed in 19 holes on Thursday morning at breezy Chambers Bay. A day earlier, Langley knocked off Tim Jackson in 19 holes in the first round of match play.
The round of 16 was being contested later Thursday afternoon.
Other winners in the morning matches included defending champ Byeong-Hun An (4 and 3), David Chung (4 and 3) and Morgan Hoffmann (6 and 4). Only four of the 16 matches even made it to No. 18, with two of them – Langley and Scott Strohmeyer’s win over Justin Thomas – going to extra holes.
