Winstead, Gagne Advance to Match Play at U.S. Amateur

U.S. Amateur match-play bracket nearly set Hillier Hammer top seeds			USGA  Chris Keane

In yesterday's opening round at Pebble Beach Golf Links he holed a shot from 100 yards at the par-5 14th.

UPDATE: Bergeron outdueled Peter Kuest on the 18th hole to earn a spot in the Round of 64 match play on Wednesday.

Cole Hammer and Daniel Hillier were tied at the top after two rounds of the U.S. Amateur, but the more compelling action on Tuesday was further down the leaderboard.

Continuing an excellent summer in which he qualified for the U.S. Open, reached the semifinals of match play at the Western Amateur and posted top-10 finishes at the Porter Cup and the Players Amateur, Strafaci will aim to surpass the round of 32, where he fell a year ago to Mark Lawrence of Virginia Tech on the final hole. DiLsio gave it his all, carding four birdies at Pebble Beach, but ultimately succumbed to the fast-moving greens, lengthy layout and intimidating collection of bunkers en route to a second round 77 (6-over).

Hillier, No. 27 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, will compete for New Zealand in next month's World Amateur Team Championship in Ireland.

Thornberry told Golfweek that he is planning to play second stage of Web.com Tour Q-School this November.

While much of the field remained on their respective courses at press time, none were expected to join the two top stroke play scorers.

The champion will receive an automatic invitation to play in all of next year's Majors - except the PGA Championship.

Carter Toms (80-76-156) is son of current U.S. Senior Open titlist David Toms.

Gary Nicklaus, 49, the fourth of Jack and Barbara Nicklaus' five children, also missed the cut at 155 after a 77 at Pebble Beach. Gagne, who found himself in a tie for 104th after 18 holes, fired a second-round tally of even par 72 to propel himself inside the cut line in a tie for 46th. He had opened with a 73 at Spyglass Hill on Monday.
