USGAMAPLE GROVE, Minn. -- Ryan Moore, the 2002 champion, picked up a pair of 5-and-4 victories Thursday to cruise into the quarterfinals at the 2004 U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship at Rush Creek Golf Club.
 
Moore downed Christopher Davidson in his second-round match. Moore then won the first three holes of his third-round match en route to knocking off Jon Veneziano by the same 5-and-4 margin. Moore moves on to face Clay Ogden.
 
Ogden knocked off Terrence Miskell, 1-up, in 20 holes, after a 5-and-4 win over Josh Williams in the second round.
 
Dayton Rose, the 2003 runner-up, outlasted Brian Atkinson, 1-up, in 19 holes in the second round. Rose then downed Brendan Steele, 1-up, in the third round. Rose birdied the second hole against Steele and led the rest of the way. He had been 3-up with seven holes to go, but Atkinson won the 12th and 17th to push the match to the 18th hole.
 
Rose moves on to face William Moore, who earned a 1-up win in 20 holes over Seung-Su Han.
 
Will Claxton claimed the match of the day. After winning 1-up over Daryl Fathauer in the second round, Claxton pushed Danny Green, the 1999 U.S. Mid- Amateur winner, to extra holes with an eagle at the par-5 18th.
 
Claxton, who never led in regulation and trailed by as many as 4-down with six holes to go, birdied the 609-yard, par-5 eighth to win, 1-up, in 26 holes over Green. Claxton will battle Evan Frederick in the quarterfinals.
 
Frederick picked up a 2-and-1 win over Nathan Smith.
 
Sunghoon Kang rolled to a 5-and-3 win over Joshua Wooding in the third round. He moves on to play Dirk Fennie, a 1-up winner over Zack Reeves.

    Woods' 2018 schedule coming into focus ... or is it?

    By Golf Channel DigitalDecember 16, 2017, 5:46 pm

    Two weeks after his successful return to competition at the Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods’ 2018 schedule may be coming into focus.

    Golfweek reported on Saturday that Woods hopes to play the Genesis Open in February according to an unidentified source with “direct knowledge of the situation.”

    Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg declined to confirm the 14-time major champion would play the event and told GolfChannel.com that Woods – who underwent fusion surgery to his lower back in April – is still formulating his ’18 schedule.

    Woods’ foundation is the host organization for the Genesis Open and the event supports the Tiger Woods Learning Center in Anaheim, Calif.

    The Genesis Open would be Woods’ first start on the PGA Tour since he missed the cut last January at the Farmers Insurance Open.
