Jarryd Felton of Gosnells Golf Club is through to the Round of 32 at the Argentine Amateur.
The World’s 67th ranked amateur golfer finished fourth after the opening two rounds of strokeplay, firing a 71 and 69 to finish 4-under at the Martindale Country Club. After sitting around the even par mark for most of the opening two rounds, a 3-under back nine in the second round pushed Felton well into the top 10, earning a very favourable 4th seed position for the matchplay rounds.
Facing 61st seed Ignacio Marino of Argentina in the opening matchplay round on Thursday, Felton recorded a 2&1 victory to qualify for the Round of 32.
Standing in the way of a Round of 16 spot at the competition is 29th seed Marcos Montenegro of Argentina. Montenegro was 4-over after the opening two rounds and defeated 36th seed Cosme Beamonte 2-up in the Round of 64.
The Round of 32 will commence at 8am Argentine time (7pm WST). If Felton qualifies through to the Round of 16, he will play that afternoon starting at 1pm Argentine time (12am WST).
