Wallace Falls in Back-and-Forth PNGA Semifinal Match
Darren Wallace lost a seesaw battle to Josh Anderson in match play in the semifinal round of the PNGA Amateur Championships on Friday. Wallace trailed Anderson by two strokes after 10 holes, but mounted a furious comeback. Anderson bogeyed No. 11 to allow Wallace to gain a stroke, but Wallace returned the favor by scoring bogey on the Par 3 No. 12.
Wallace closed the gap back to 1 down on No. 13 when he scored par and Anderson bogeyed. He evened the match on No. 16 with a birdie, but immediately fell back down a hole on 17 when he scored bogey and Anderson scored a par. Needing a big finish on 18, Wallace birdied the Par 4 hole and Anderson scored a par to force extra holes.
On the 19th hole, the Par 4 No. 1, Wallace bogeyed and Anderson scored a par to win the match and advance to the finals. Anderson will face No. 1 seed Tyler Mathews in Saturday's final.
