Two Tide Golfers Advance At Amateur
The top 64 golfers in the 312-player field advanced after two rounds (36 holes) of stroke play on Monday and Tuesday.
Cauley, a Jacksonville, Fla., native and a sophomore on the Alabama golf team, finished tied for fifth in stroke play with a 2-over-par total of 142. He fired a 2-over 72 at Southern Hills on Monday and carded an even-par 70 at Cedar Ridge Country Club, which is co-hosting the stroke play, Tuesday.
Cauley was just two strokes behind medalist Tim Jackson of Germantown, Tenn., who shot an even-par 140 after rounds of 68 and 72.
Strohmeyer, a native of Auburn, Ala., who is a redshirt freshman for the Tide, enters match play after finishing tied for 32nd at 6-over-par 146. He shot a 71 on Tuesday at Cedar Ridge after firing a 75 on the Southern Hills layout on Monday.
Both sophomore Hunter Hamrick and recent Tide graduate and UA student assistant Matthew Swan competed in the U.S. Amateur but did not advance out of stroke play.
