Anguiano, Tetrault Complete First Round Play at U.S. Amateur

FULLERTON, Calif. – Cal State Fullerton senior golfer to be Mark Anguiano finished tied for seventh and junior to be Ryan Tetrault ended 58th after 18 holes at the 113th U.S. Amateur tournament at the Charles River Country Club on Monday in Brookline, Mass.

With one round left to play, Anguiano and Tetrault will play tomorrow at The Country Club in hopes of being among the top 64 scorers that advance to match play, which begins Wednesday, August 14.

Anguiano, who qualified in July at Saticoy Country Club in Somis, Calif., finished the day with a 2-under par 68, rebounding from a 1-over par on the front nine to rally on the back nine with a 3-under par, including an eagle on the 15th hole.

Tetrault, a July qualifier out of Hacienda Golf Club, was 2-over with a score of 72 after the first round. The Villa Park, Calif., native is competing in the U.S. Amateurs for the second consecutive year after shooting a 155 (+14) to miss out on match play in 2012.

Nick Hardy, from Northbrook, Ill., leads the field after shooting a 5-under 65 in the first round.

Last year, Anguiano caddied for Tetrault in the 112th U.S. Amateur held at Cherry Hills Country Club in Cherry Hills Village, Colo. Tetrault and former Titan Dakota Duerr were both eliminated after 36 holes last year.
