Western Amateur Scoring
CHICAGO -- Cheng-Tsung Pan has done it again, qualifying for the Sweet 16 at the Western Amateur for a fifth time. The Husky senior-to-be finished tied for seventh in the stroke play portion of the tournament hosted at the Beverly Country Club to advance to match play beginning Friday.
Pan has excelled at the Western Amatuer, now having qualified for the match play five-straight times. Twice Pan was the medalist during stroke play (2009 and 2010) becoming just the second person to do that in back-to-back years.
This year, Pan finished tied for seventh at 8-under 276. He played all four rounds under par, shooting 70-69-70-67. He will play Beau Hossler in the Round of 16 match play on Friday.
Corey Pereira also competed in the Western Amateur, but did not advance after shooting 73-72-145 (+3) in the first two rounds. Pereira who recently earned a commanding victory at the Pacific Coast Amateur needed to finish in the top-50 of the first two rounds of stroke play to play rounds three and four.
