MAMARONECK, N.Y. (www.okstate.com) — Oklahoma State senior-to-be Dayton Rose survived two extra-hole matches on Thursday to advance to the final eight at the U.S. Amateur at Winged Foot Golf Club, while former Cowboy standout Trip Kuehne was eliminated in his second-round matchup against Luke List.
In his morning match against Brian Gillespie, Rose fell behind with a bogey at the fourth hole and was two down before claiming Nos. 15 and 16 to square the match. The Midwest City, Okla., bogeyed the 17th before sending the contest to extra holes with a par on the closing hole. Rose ended the match with a birdie on the first playoff hole.
During his afternoon matchup against Nick Cook, Rose held a 3-up advantage through 10 holes, but Cook clawed back with wins at Nos. 12 and 14 before
forcing extra holes with a par at the 18th hole. Both players parred the par-4 first before Rose closed out the match with a par on the match's 20th hole.
Kuehne, a three-time All-American at OSU, grabbed a 1-up lead on the second hole, but quickly gave it back on the par-3 third and would never lead again against List, a Vanderbilt sophomore. List built a two-hole advantage on the front nine before Kuehne battled back to square the match on No. 13. However, back-to-back bogeys by the Dallas, Texas native followed before List closed out the match by halving Nos. 16 and 17 for a 2-and-1 victory.
Rose will begin his quest to become the third consecutive Cowboy golfer to reach the championship match Friday at 12:40 p.m. (EST) against
former Arizona golfer Chris Nallen. Hunter Mahan advanced to the final match in 2002 followed by Casey Wittenberg last summer.
