PLACE, Wash.-- Augusta State’s Carter Newman and Patrick Reed were each ousted from the 112th
U.S. Amateur Thursday in the Round of 32 of match play at Chambers Bay.
The duo was knocked out of America’s oldest amateur championship in very different ways.
Illinois’ Scott Langley, the medalist at June’s NCAA Championships and the low amateur in the U.S. Open, outlasted ASU junior Patrick Reed in what Golfweek magazine described an epic match that went 19 holes. Reed led for the first 13 holes before Langley squared the match with a birdie on the 14th and took a 1-up lead on the 15th.
Reed birdied the 16th to pull even in the match, only to have Langley win the 17th to reclaim a 1-up advantage.
Staring at elimination, Reed battled back with a birdie on the par-5, 605-yard 18th to force extra holes. He was then undone by an errant drive on the first extra hole and conceded Langley’s par putt.
“It’s disappointing because I felt like I played real well this week,” Reed told Golfweek following the match.
Newman, who survived a 16-players-for-6-spots playoff Wednesday morning just to reach match play, dropped the first hole to the University of California’s Max Homa and never recovered as Homa closed out the match with a birdie on the 12th hole for a 7-and-6 victory.
Newman and Reed became the first Jaguars to advance to the Round of 32 since former ASU All-Americans Michael Webb and Jamie Elson faced each other in the Round of 32 in 2001.
