U.S. Amateur Playoff: 23 players for 8 Spots
Time is yet to run out on the 23 players in the U.S. Amateur playoff
BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI (August 17, 2016) -- When U.S.
Amateur play began on Monday at Oakland Hills Golf
Club there were 312 players in the field and it was only
natural to assume that there would be a playoff to
determine the final spots in the match play field.
However, I'm just not sure anyone could have imagined
a 23 player for eight spots playoff.
Beginning at 8:00 a.m. EST the 23 players that
tied for 57th at even-par will play for the final eight
spots. The 23 players will be split into six groups and
the playoff will begin on the 10th hole before
the 11th, 17th and 18th.
Group 1 (8:00 a.m.):
McNealy, Ian Holt
Group 2 (8:12 a.m.):
Hagestad, Ethan Ng, Scott Harvey
Group 3 (8:24 a.m.):
