Nathan Holman’s run at the US Amateur was drawn to a close this morning after being knocked out in the round of 16. The Woodland’s member started the day’s play with an impressive 4&3 victory over Blair Hamilton in the round of 32.
Later, Holman would come up against Englishman Neil Raymond, 27, the oldest remaining player in the field who rallied in the closing holes to defeat Holman, 22, 1 up. He made a 7-foot par putt on No. 15 to stay 1 down. Raymond then earned conceded birdies on the par-3 16th and par-4 17th when his opponent ran into trouble. Holman hit his tee shot into the front bunker on No. 16 and sent his approach shot over the green on the following hole. Raymond wrapped up the win with a 7-foot par putt on No. 18.
Meanwhile, Western Australian duo Brady Watt and Oliver Goss are still alive having made it through to the quarter-final stage.
