32 remaining men’s best amateur golfers will take the field on Thursday for more action. After Round-of-32, the field will shrink down to 16 players. Then, the Round-of-16 play will begin Thursday afternoon.
The Round of 64 saw many upsets, including the top-ranked Luke Gutschewski’s defeat to Peyton Snoeberger in 20 holes. Moreover, Michael Thorbjornsen (Rank 2), Gordon Sargent (Rank 5), Adrien Dumont de Chassart (Rank 6), Cohen Trolio (Rank 9), and Rasmus Neergaard Petersen (Rank 10) none could make it to the Round of 32.
Now the remaining top players are Hugo Townsend (Sweden), who will face Campbell Kremer (Kentucky) today. Another interesting matchup could be Brazil’s Fred Biondi (Rank 4) against Sam Bennet (Texas).
Round of 16 Preview:
University of Colorado sophomore Justin Biwer won Thursday’s first match of the day. Still, it fell in the Round of 16 to complete a solid performance in the 122nd annual U.S. Amateur.
Seeded No. 22 after stroke play and winner of two match play efforts, Biwer’s week ended in the Round of 16 against Pepperdine University senior Derek Hitchner, who claimed the win, 3 & 2. Hitchner jumped early in the match on the 7,487-yard, par-71 Ridgewood Country Club course, opening with two pars, while Biwer went bogey-double. He extended the lead to three holes with a par on No. 8 when Biwer scored a bogey.
But the Buff soph came right back with a par on No. 9, and a birdie on No. 12 pulled him back to within one. Hitchner regained his two-hole edge when he parred No. 14 and when he birdied No. 15 to go back up by three; it essentially sealed the match when both scored par on No. 16. Hitchner was seeded 59th (but was just three strokes back of Biwer in stroke play).
“I’m really happy with how everything went,” Biwer said. “Derek played a perfect round and made it extremely hard to get the upper hand on him. I had a really good match before that, so overall, I’m very pleased with how the week went.
“It’s a great way to get back into the swing of college golf, and I’m looking forward to taking the things I’ve learned this week into the rest of my game.”
“It was a really good week for Justin; he played really well,” CU head coach Roy Edwards said. “He played well enough to win today, but Hitchner played really well himself. Justin should gain much confidence from his performance here at Ridgewood.”
