After Strong Start to U.S. Mid-Amateur, Johnson Eliminated During Round of 64

September 17, 2019

 
  PARKER, Colo. – After finishing the first two rounds of stroke play inside the top-15 at the 2019 U.S. Mid-Amateur Sunday, Minnesotan Troy Johnson was eliminated from the championship Monday during the Round of 64, falling to Nick Nosewicz, 4 and 3, at Colorado Golf Club.
 
Johnson, of Maple Grove, Minn., opened the championship with a round of 67 Saturday and followed it by shooting 73 during the second round of qualifying, finishing tied for 13th at 140.
 
Seeded No. 14 for the match play portion of the championship, Johnson fell behind after a birdie by Nosewicz at the par-5 fourth before dropping three straight holes to face a 4-down deficit after nine holes.
 
Johnson struck back by winning the 10th, but was unable to make up any ground moving forward as Nosewicz carded a birdie at the 11th to regain a 4-up lead. Johnson birdied the 12th, but Nosewicz closed out the match at the 15th with a birdie to win, 4 and 3.
