    Andy beat a UGA player to advance to the semifinals of the US Amateur at Pinehurst. He has a chance to match Matt Kuchar and Bobby Jones as champions of that event. He is playing exceptionally well this week.

    I turned on the TV and saw AO. I thought his name sounded familiar. Go Andy

    Came here to say the same thing. Just hit what they said was the shot of the day - our if some scrub and to 4 feet, then sank his birdie putt to go 2 Up on the 11th. He’s got his GT hat on, and playing well!

    Yeah I just watch the video summary of the morning session. The website that showed the score was apparently incorrect for some reason.

    I guess if there is some good news, Andy was down by as many as 4. He’s still grinding.

    Website shows Ogletree 1 Up through 19. I assume it’s still wrong and that he’s 1 Down. But that’s still a big improvement over 4 Down. Furthermore, Andy’s won 2 straight holes.

    I just pulled up the scorecards - Ogletree Lost 4 of the first 5 holes! What a great grind to pull himself back into the match..

    Ogletree only has 1 single bogey through 21 holes. He’s something like -3 on the day. He’s definitely playing high quality golf - just going up against someone who also is.

    He may have been nervous and has settled down. Who wouldn't be nervous?

    It is on Fox now, so I’ve been watching for a bit.

    Now 1 Down through 25. He’s very par-y. The other guy has made a mistake a couple times, and Ogletree either doesn’t capitalize, or just barely does. For example, the other guy hits it into a trap off the hole - Ogletree I would think would then aim for the middle of the green...but he doesn’t. He’s actually outscoring the other guy, as a couple holes he won by more than 2 strokes, but they just pick the balls up and move on.

    1 Bogey in 25 holes...can’t ask for much better than that.

    Andy definitely has game. Was he the golf team’s No1 this year?

    Still hanging around like an old pair of underwear - down 1 with 7 holes left.
