CHERRY HILLS VILLAGE, Colo. — It’s extremely difficult to make the cut at the U.S. Amateur. So much so, only one in five golfers make it to match play.
What started Monday morning with 312 players across two sites is down to 64 at the 2023 U.S. Amateur at Cherry Hills Country Club. The cut came in at 1 over, but that doesn’t mean the match play bracket is set.
For a while, it looked as if there would be a 15-for-1 playoff on Wednesday morning, but some late score adjustments resulted in exactly 64 players making the cut, meaning match play will begin at 11 a.m. ET Wednesday at Cherry Hills.
Those 1 over and worse are packing their bags. Meanwhile, there was a three-way tie for medalist honors, including the youngest ever to win medalist honors at the U.S. Amateur.
