Atherton golfer advances to match play at U.S. Amateur


Atherton resident Jonathan Garrick, a junior on the men's golf team at UCLA, finds himself in a six-way tie for second place with a 5-under 138 following two rounds of the U.S. Amateur Championships in Atlanta on Tuesday.

The St. Francis High grad followed a first-round 67 with a 1-under 71 on Tuesday on the Atlanta Athletic Club's Riverside Course.

Arkansas junior Taylor Moore paces the group with an 8-under 135.

The tournament enters match play, with the Round of 64 to be contested on Wednesday.

Stanford sophomore Maverick McNealy, a Portola Valley resident, shot a first round 71 before falling off to 75 on Tuesday.

Garrick had an exceptional tournament at the Canadian Men's Amateur Championships last week in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

He finished regulation play in a three-way tie for the lead before New Zealand's James Beale won it on the third playoff hole.

Garrick recorded a 6-under 276 for the tournament, shooting rounds of 66, 68, 74 and 68.

Cardinal sophomore Jim Liu placed 27th in the tournament, firing rounds of 74, 68, 73 and 70 for a 3-over 285.

Stanford senior Patrick Grimes, a Menlo School grad, made the cut and finished 71st overall with a 20-over 302. He shot rounds of 75 and 70 before falling off.

Actually, Garrick tied for third at the U.S. Amateur to be correct.
