SALT LAKE CITY — Carson Lundell’s run at the U.S. Amateur came to an end Thursday afternoon in the round of 16 at Bandon Dunes in Bandon, Oregon, where he lost 7 and 5 to Charles Osborne of Reno, Nevada.
The BYU junior-to-be had advanced past the round of 32 with a 3 and 2 victory over Hunter Wolcott of Dickson, Tennessee, after winning his first match on Thursday. But he didn’t play as well in his afternoon match Thursday.
The 22nd-seeded Lundell went into the round as the third-best remaining seed after a bunch of upsets had eliminated most of the top seeds. However, he had a rough day, losing four of the first five holes with three bogeys and a double bogey. Lundell won the seventh hole, but dropped the next two with bogeys to fall 6 down at the turn. He won one more hole, but Wolcott closed out the match with a par at No. 13.
The quarterfinals and semifinals will be played Friday and the two players left for Saturday’s final will meet in a 36-hole final and both receive invitations to next year’s Masters.
