Ollie Schniederjans and Bo Andrews are getting closer to an opportunity to take home the U.S. Amateur crown.
Both Georgia Tech standouts won their matches in the Match Play round Wednesday.
Schniederjans is starting to show why he is the No.1 Amateur Golfer on the planet in this tournament. He made pretty easy work of Temple’s Matt Teesdale by finishing him 6 and 5 in 14 holes.
Meanwhile, Georgia Tech 2014 graduate and Atlanta Athletic Club member, Bo Andrew, also strutted his stuff on the golf course by defeating Atlanta’s Chris Waters 5 and 4.
Both Andrew and Schniederjans have moved on to the Round of 32 and have potentially 36 holes to play Thursday if they can get passed their opening matchup.
Bo Andrews will tee off against Zachary Olsen of Cordova, TN at 9:35 AM, while Ollie Schniederjans will be taking his swings starting at 8:45 AM against Sam Burns of Shreveport, LA.
Sadly, Seth Reeves was not able to advance to the Round of 32 after being defeated by Gunn Yang of Korea. Reeves fell behind by three holes through seven and was unable to pull back to even in his match.
Today loss ends Reeves amateur career. However, he will be looking to take his golf game to the pro level when he plays in mini-tour events in an attempt to gain entrance into the PGA Tour qualifying school later this year.
Ollie Schneiderjans and Bo Andrews at the end of the day have inched closer to becoming the first Georgia Tech golfers since Matt Kuchar in 2000 to win the U.S. Amateur crown.
