Muscatell Misses Stroke Play by One Shot

CLEMSON, SC – Clemson senior Michael Muscatell had rounds of 74-70 in the 36-hole stroke play qualifier at the US Amateur in Denver, CO on Monday and Tuesday.  His 144 total missed the cut for the 64-player match play championship by just one shot.

Muscatell had four birdies and four bogeys in his round on Monday.  He had three consecutive bogeys on holes four through six on the front side, then came back with birdies on the seventh and ninth holes to finish the first nine at even par 36.  He also shot even par 34 on the back, including a birdie four on the par five 18th hole.

He was consistent for the 36 holes as he did not have a hole worse than bogey.  He had five birdies and eight bogeys.  He played the par five holes at three under par.
