FULLERTON, Calif. - Cal State Fullerton golfers Mark Anguiano and Ryan Tetrault saw their hopes for advancing at the US Amateur tournament in Brookline, Mass., come to an end Tuesday, finishing outside of the Top 64 players who advanced for a shot at an invitation to the US Open on Wednesday.
Anguiano, who qualified in July at the Saticoy Country Club in Somis, Calif., finished the 36-hole play-in with a 5-over par, 145-stroke effort. After first round action Anguiano finished the day 2-under par tied for seventh, but shot a 77 (+7) on Tuesday to finish one shot behind the qualifiers.
Tetrault, a July qualifier at the Hacienda Golf Club, was also 5-over with a score of 145 in the two rounds. He shot a 72 (+2) at the Charles River Country Club on Monday and then a 73 (+1) in his second round at the Country Club in Brookline, Mass.
Brady Watt, of Australia, and Neil Raymond of England leads the field of players that has been narrowed to 64 after Tuesday's round. Both golfers were six-under through the first 36 holes.
The Titan duo will return home and begin preparing for their first tournament of the 2013-14 season. They will head to Pullman, Wash., Sept. 9-10 for the Itani Quality Homes Collegiate hosted by Washington State at the Washington State University Palouse Ridge Golf Club.
