Garrick bows out of U.S. Amateur Championship

 

Atherton resident Jonathan Garrick bogeyed the 16th hole to fall behind and eventually lose, 1 up, to Texas Christian grad Eli Cole of Los Angeles in the Round of 32 match play at the U.S. Amateur on the Atlanta Athletic Club's Highlands Course on Thursday.

Garrick, who was among the leaders in stroke play, played par or better through 10 holes and held a 4 up advantage after nine. The UCLA junior bogeyed four of his final eight holes, opening the door for Cole, who was scheduled to meet Virginia senior Denny McCarthy in the Round of 16 later Thursday.

"I've been working on a few things since (NCAAs), and I've only seen it in bits and pieces," Garrick told Golf Week's Cassie Stein. "I played well at the Western (Amateur), but it didn't show in my scores. I just kept telling myself it's going to come together soon, and then at the Canadian it did. And still feels good."

Garrick, who finished second at the Canadian amateur, met two of his goals this week, making the cut and getting himself into contention for medalist honors after stroke play.

He recorded three top-10 finishes during the college season, including a second-place showing at the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters. He was second at the 2013 NCAA regional tournament in Tempe.

Garrick's last tournament victory was at the 2012 Cal Poly Invitational, in which he shot three consecutive rounds of 67.
