San Francisco, CA (August 22, 2007) – Jason Kokrak, 22, of Warren, Ohio, earned medalist honors after the conclusion of play at the U.S. Amateur’s second round of stroke play Wednesday morning at the Olympic Club.

The long-hitting Kokrak, who qualified for the U.S. Open in June, played a bogey-free second round Tuesday en route to a 2-under-par 68 for a 36-hole total of 3-under 137. He finished a stroke better than Alex Prugh, 22, of Spokane, Wash., and David Merkow, 22, of Hartland, Wis. Prugh, a quarterfinalist from last year’s Amateur, tied the low round for the championship with a 66 in his second round. Merkow had a 69 each day.

"I’ve played in four of the last five Amateurs, but I never played that well," said Kokrak, a tall 230-pounder who gained attention by reaching the 607-yard 16th hole at the Lake Course in two shots in a practice round Saturday. "I never came in with the confidence I have now. Making the Open just opened up all the doors for me the rest of the summer."

Stroke play for the Amateur was played over the par 6,786-yard, par-70 Ocean Course and the better-known Lake Course that has hosted four Opens. The Lake Course is set up at par 70 and 6,948 yards.

Fifty-four golfers finished their second round Wednesday morning. The cut was at 7 over par, with 17 players in a playoff for the final six spots in the field. Among those in the playoff are 2004 U.S. Mid-Amateur champion Austin Eaton, 38, of North Sutton, N.H., and Raymond Floyd Jr., 32, of Old Greenwich, Conn., the son of PGA and Champions Tour player Ray Floyd.

Other top finishers who safely advanced to match play are Drew Weaver (141), 20, of High Point, N.C.; Joseph Bramlett (142), 19, of Saratoga, Calif.; and George Zahringer (142), 54, of New York. Weaver, a student at Virginia Tech who narrowly escaped the tragic shootings on campus in April, won this year’s British Amateur and played in the British Open. Bramlett is a hometown favorite who attends nearby Stanford, and Zahringer, the low amateur in the 2007 U.S. Senior Open, was the oldest to advance to match play.

Argentina’s Estanislao Goya, 19, who led the field with a 66 Monday, stumbled to a 78 in his second round at the Lake Course, but still advanced to match play.

Another player for match play is career amateur Gary Wolstenholme of England, who celebrated his 47th birthday Tuesday with a 74 at the Lake Course. Wolstenholme is a two-time British Amateur champion who has played on six Walker Cup teams for Great Britain and Ireland.

The first-round matches start at 10 a.m. PDT Wednesday. The championship concludes with Sunday’s 36-hole final. The winner receives a berth in the 2008 U.S. Open and British Open, and a likely invitation to play in the 2008 Masters Tournament.

The championship is one of 13 national championships conducted by the United States Golf Association, 10 of which are strictly for amateurs. The USGA is the national governing body of golf in this country and Mexico, a combined territory that includes more than half the game’s golfers and golf courses.

San Francisco – Results following the conclusion of the second round of stroke play Wednesday at the 2007 U.S. Amateur Championship played at the 6,948-yard, par-70 Lake Course and the 6,786-yard, par 70 Ocean Course at The Olympic Club (l = Lake Course, o = Ocean Course) (* = in playoff):
