Chappell and Kang Are Eliminated in Match Play at U.S. Amateur
Aug. 23, 2006
Kang fell 2 and 1 to Canada's Ryan Yip in a morning match. Kang held a brief 1-up lead after posting a birdie at the par-4 fifth, but Yip birdied the sixth to square the match. At the ninth, Yip posted another birdie and held a 1-up lead until he birdied the 11th to move ahead 2-up. Kang cut the lead to one on the next hole, but Yip's birdie at the 14th gave him another 2-up lead. The next three holes were halved and Yip won without playing the 18th. On the day, with the usual match play concessions Kang was even par.
Chappell built a 3-up lead against Greg Carlin after a birdie at the par 3 eighth. Chappell's untimely bogeys at the ninth and 12th holes, and clutch birdies by Carlin at the 11th, 14th and 15th holes propelled Carlin to victory. Chappell was two-under par on the day with the usual match play concessions.
