    Did any break par on No. 2 yesterday? I did not see any scores below 71. Must be playing crazy hard. Wish the US open would play that tough...

    How is the playoff being managed? They have 7 groups. So if you have a chance to get to the next hole, you have to wait around an hour, right?

    10 players from the state of Texas made it to match play. Just thought I would throw that in. Including what may be the only set of twin brothers to make it to match, Pierceson and Parker Coody from Plano, TX and currently playing at The University of Texas. Parker has already won his first match 7&6 and Pierceson is 3 up thru 9.

    I do not really know any of these guys but would love to see Squires win it (last guy in from the 20+ player playoff). He is 4 up thru 13 and on the verge of the quarterfinals! Just goes to show you that easily 100 of these players had a shot at winning the championship. Love the parity.

    Lost against Austin Squires today. I hope he goes all the way, that would be a pretty cool story. He is a good player and great kid!

    Looking at this course , it only has 2 par 5s. I’m guessing 2 of the par4s are played as par 5s by regular folks ? Yep two par 4s over 520 yards. Woof.

    Yeah, they convert 8 and 16 into par 4s. The crazy thing with 520 is that it looks nonsensical to normal players, but for top amateurs and especially pros, that hole is played with a driver and a 6 or 7 iron. Someone posted about "short" par 4s being the backbone of golf courses, but what's a short 4? Top level guys are reaching 300 yards holes in one shot and 440 holes are approached with wedges.

    Maybe they're hoping the greens slow down.

    One of the guys doing the coverage on periscope said the greens were 14.5 on the stimp. Yikes.

    I’d knock a foot off. That would be a more accurate number but still a tinge high, buddy of mine from turf school is an agronomist with the USGA he was on site this week.

    Why in the **** is the USGA making them play in these conditions? Absolutely stupid. Kid was in obvious casual water and the rules official wouldn't give him relief.

    Edit: Just as soon as I hit post, they suspend play. Casual water is all over the place.

    pouring rain out there and apparently there's no intention by the usga to suspend play ... casual water everywhere and golfers hitting out of water ... fricking stupid ...

    now they've suspended it ... 4 or 5 guys literally had to hit out of water, even after calling an official over to look at the situation ...

    As everyone suspected, a 17 year old does advance to the semi finals.
    However, it is Cohen Trolio that is moving on.
    He will meet Andy Ogletree of Georgia Tech in the semi finals.

    They are the first two golfers ever from the state of Mississippi to make the quarterfinals of the US Amateur much less the semi finals. And now the Magnolia State is guaranteed someone in the final.

    The other semi final will have William Holcomb V against John Augenstein.
    Holcomb plays for Sam Houston State.

    John Augenstein plays for Vanderbilt and is the highest ranked player left. He knocked out Akshay Bhatia in the Round of 32 and he also took down Collin Morikawa in the US Amateur last year.
