Warnquist, Lister, McCarthy Advance in US Junior

July 21, 2010 by  

The first round of match play is in the books at the US Junior Amateur being played at Egypt Valley Country Club in Ada, Michigan.  The course is playing to par 72 over 7,111 yards.

Three juniors from the DC Metro Area made the cut for match play after 36 holes of stroke play.  Ben Warnquist (Rockville, MD) fired a very impressive 70, 68 – 138 to tie for 7th (9th seed).

Andrew Lister (Haymarket, VA) was right behind Ben with a 73, 67 – 140 finish good enough for a T14 (15th seed).  And, Denny McCarthy (Burtonsville, MD) found himself down around the middle of the pack, shooting 71, 74 – 145 for a T30 (32nd seed).

The cut was made at 149.  The Medalist was Curtis Thompson (Coral Springs, FL) who went way low at 10-under (68, 66 – 134).  Defending champion Jordan Spieth was one stroke back of Thompson (67, 68 – 135).

In first round match play, Warnquist dispatched Peter Mathison (Jupiter, FL) 5 & 4.  Warnquist led the match from the #1 and was in front by 6up on two different occasions.  Lister, like Warnquist, had a fairly easy go of it defeating David Flynn (Elk Grove Village, IL) 7 &5.  McCarthy, who led the match from #8 and on, sealed a 1up win over Grayson Murray (Raleigh, NC).

In the Round of 32 action, McCarthy draws the first match of the day.  He will meet Medalist and #1 seed Curtis Thompson.  Warnquist competes in match 4 against 41st seed Bryson Dechambeau (Clovis, CA).  Lister draws Stephen Behr (Florence, SC) in the day’s 10th match.  Behr is the 18th seed.

Hang on to your hats folks, it’s gonna be a great day of golf for the DC Metro locals.
