Main claims medalist honors at U.S. Amateur
Erin, WI (Sports Network) - Gregor Main captured the medalist honors at the U.S. Amateur championship with a two-round total of 10-under-par 132.
Main was a first-round co-leader at five-under par and had to finish his second round on Wednesday, along with half of the field, after storms caused a weather delay on Tuesday.
The Danville, California resident finished two shots in front of Blake Biddle, who completed a three-under 67 on Wednesday and wound up at minus-eight after stroke play.
Beau Hossler, Blayne Barber, Russell Henley and Ben Geyer each finished at minus-seven.
Defending champion Peter Uihlein comfortably qualified for the match-play portion of the event, tying for eighth in stroke play at five-under par.
The top 64 players will qualify for match play, which is scheduled to begin later Wednesday. A total of 20 players were still vying for the final four spots in the match-play field.
Two courses were used for stroke play, the par 72 Erin Hills Golf Course and the par 70 Blue Mound Golf and Country Club. The Erin Hills Course, which, at 7,760 yards, is the longest course in USGA history, will host the match-play part of the championship.
