ST. LOUIS, MO (September 21, 2016) -- Medalist Tim Jackson continued to move along during Wednesday's quarterfinal victory at the U.S. Senior Amateur.

Facing No. 56 John McClure at Old Warson Country Club, Jackson had to rally late to secure a 19 hole victory. Trailing 2 down with three holes left, Jackson won the 16th and 17th holes to square the match. He then claimed the match with a 19th hole birdie.

In the semifinals, Jackson will face Dave Ryan. The 29-seed advanced with a 5&3 victory over No. 37 Michael Dunsmore.
