Quarterfinals Set at North and South Amateur


NCAA Collegiate Player of the Year Bryce Molder defeated Wynn Solle in 19 holes and then disposed of Nicholas Thompson 2-and-1 Wednesday to advance into the quarterfinals of the 101st North and South Amateur Championship held at Pinehurst No. 2.
The Georgia Tech student will now face David Sanchez of Charlotte, N.C.
Sanchez, a 23-year-old graduate from North Carolina State, beat Bret Guetz and then defending champion David Eger to move into Thursdays play.
I havent gotten my name out there the way I would have liked, claimed Sanchez who was winless in his career at N.C. State. I havent done anything really big. So if I could say I beat one of them that would help.
In other matches, medallist Jason Moon lost his second match of the day to Chad Wilfong 1-up, while U.S. Mid-Amateur Greg Puga lost to Michael Sims 1-up.
