MAMARONECK, N.Y. (www.okstate.com) — Senior-to-be Dayton Rose and former Cowboy golfer Trip Kuehne both advanced to the second round of match play at the U.S. Amateur on Wednesday at Winged Foot Golf Club.
Rose was two down to Brea, Calif., native Chirs Heintz through seven holes before recording birdies at Nos. 8 and 9 to square the match. After losing the 10th hole with a bogey, Rose birdied the par-5 12th to square the match and built a two-hole advantage with two holes remaining before hanging on for a 1-up victory.
Kuehne claimed the first two holes in his matchup against UNLV junior Ryan Keeney and never looked back, cruising to a 4 and 3 victory. The Dallas, Texas native won four of the first five holes and held a 2-up advantage at the turn before closing out the match with a par on the 15th hole.
During the stroke play portion of the tournament, Rose, who is coming off his second consecutive runner-up finish at the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship in July, carded rounds of 74 and 72 to finish tied for 17th, while Kuehne, the 1994 U.S. Amateur runner-up, tied for 23rd with rounds of 73 and 74.
Rose will tee off tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. (EST) against Brian Gillespie, while Kuehne will begin play at 9:50 a.m. against Vanderbilt sophomore Luke
