Rose and Whaley Qualify for Match Play at U.S. Senior Amateur

August 25, 2019

 
  DURHAM, N.C. – Playing his final 10 holes in even par Sunday, Minnesotan Jerry Rose posted a 2-over 74 at Old Chatham Golf Club and will advance to the match play portion of the 2019 U.S. Senior Amateur Championship for the second straight season, finishing 36 holes of stroke play tied for 19th at 3-over 147
 
After knocking out two-time U.S. Senior Amateur champion Paul Simson during last year’s Round of 16, Rose fell during the quarterfinal round but earned an exemption into this year’s tournament in the process.
 
Rose, a native of Alexandria, Minn., will face New Yorker Ned Zachar at 1:14 p.m. Monday.
 
Minnesotan Tom Whaley bounced back from an opening-round 77 Saturday by carding a 1-over 73 Sunday to advance to match play in his first appearance at the 55-and-older national championship.
 
Whaley, from Edina, Minn., who fell to Jim Lehman at the Minnesota Golf Association Senior Players’ Championship in June at Crow River Golf Club, played his opening nine at even par Sunday before slipping to 2-over for the championship following a pair of early bogeys to begin his back nine.
 
With a birdie at the par-5 sixth hole, Whaley would card a 1-over 73 to finish tied for 36th at 6-over 150 and will now face Ohio’s Terry Tyson when the Round of 64 begins early Monday.

Posting back-to-back rounds of 8-over 80, Minnesotan J.T. Johnson finished the first two rounds of stroke play at 16-over 160, missing the cut for match play by seven strokes.
 
The 2019 U.S. Senior Amateur Championship resumes Monday when the Round of 64 begins at 7:50 a.m. at Old Chatham Golf Club.
