Team USA explodes in round one of US Amateur match play
UPDATE: Bud Cauley loses to David Lingmerth, 2 & 1…all 8 Walker Cuppers are out!!
MEANWHILE, Mike Van Sickle wins, 6 & 5…Dan Woltman wins, 7 & 6… Peter Uihlein wins, 2 & 1… Cameron Tringale wins, 1 up… Phillip Mollica wins, 1 up.
DO YOU THINK that these guys want to make the USA side just a little bit? I do, too.
Rickie Fowler loses to Bud Cauley, 3 & 1
Brian Harman loses to Chris Ward, 19 holes
Morgan Hoffman loses to Charlie Hoffman, 19 holes
Nathan Smith loses to Zach Barlow, 2 down
Drew Weaver, missed match play by 1 stroke
Adam Mitchell, missed match play by 3 strokes
Brendan Gielow, missed match play by 6 strokes
Not exactly the results Buddy Marucci (who lost in a 27-for-4 playoff for the last match play spots) was hoping for, heading into the Walker Cup.
On the bright side, team USA has two more picks and the guys most likely to be in the running (Peter Uihlein, Mike Van Sickle, Mark Anderson, Cameron Tringale and Dan Woltman) were winners or were winning of/in first round matches at 5 PM EST. Finally, the hottest player around, Dodge Kemmer, disposed of his opponent, 6 & 5. Kemmer won the Scratch Players Championship last week.
