Kyle Bailey had a good day yesterday at the San Antonio Amateur, going 2-under and tying for the low round of the day, leaving him tied for fourth, four shots behind 36-hole leader Austin Wylie. On Sunday, he would not only have to play well to win, he’d have to do so in tough conditions. After two months of constant rain have led to thick rough.

“With all the rain that we’ve had, the rough is really thick,” 2014 winner J.J. Wall told MySanAntonio.com. “In the past, when you hit your ball in the trees, you could find it, but everything’s so overgrown now that it’s just gone. It really narrows the course down.”

Bailey found it to his liking, and duplicated his 2-under 69 from the previous day, leaving him standing alone at the end as champion of the 2015 San Antonio Amateur at the 6,681-yard, par-71Republic Golf Club. He finished the 54-hole tournament with a 1-under 212.

Bailey, stationed at Lackland Air Force Base, had three bogeys on the day, but immediately made up for two of them on the following holes with birdies. Even-par through 12 holes, birdies on nos. 13 and 15 sealed the fate of the rest of the field and gave Baily the win.middle of the round.”

“I knew if I got one more birdie (on the 18th hole) to get to two under that might have a chance,” Bailey told the San Antonio Express-News. “I had no idea (I could win).”

Second round leader Austin Wylie went 3-over for the day and finished tied for second, one stroke behind with a 213. Alex Bissaro went 3-under for the day and finished tied with Wylie, while Chis Massoletti was 1-over and also tied for second.
