Stroke play is finally finished at the United States Amateur today after a three and a half hour rain delay yesterday. Gregor Main, who finished his junior year at UCLA, won medalist honors in Wisconsin with a two-day total of 10-under-par playing both Erin Hills and Blue Mound Golf & Country Club. Other notable finishes are:
Beau Hossler and Russell Henley tied for third. Hossler made his debut as the 16-year-old who qualified for the U.S. Open in June. Henley won the Nationwide Tour’s Stadion Classic at UGA and is 2011 Walker Cup team member
Defending U.S. Amateur Champion Peter Uihlein finished tied for eighth at 5-under-par. Also in a tie for eighth is 2010 NCAA Individual Champion Scott Langley, who shot a second-round 63 on the Blue Mound course. Langley is trying to solidify his spot on the Walker Cup team. Harris English, another amateur winner on the Nationwide Tour in July, finished with a stroke play total of 3-under-par 140.
Jordan Spieth (-5), Andrew Putnam (-4), Corbin Mills (-3), John Peterson (-3) and Andrew Yun (-2) all advanced to match play as they are also vying for spots on the Walker Cup team. If any of these five advance far, expect some of these names announced on Sunday.
Patrick Canlay, who has had an outstanding summer as an amateur both in amateur tournaments and in some PGA TOUR events, finished at 2-under-par.
The match play round will begin this afternoon after a playoff is held to get to an even 64 players for match play.
