Ziegler Falls in Quarterfinals of U.S. Amateur
Aug. 28, 2009
STANFORD, Calif. - Steve Ziegler's quest to win the United States Amateur Golf Championship came to an end today as the Stanford junior was defeated on the 21st hole of his quarterfinal match against Byeong-Hun An of Korea.
Ziegler trailed An through 17 holes at the famed Southern Hills Country Club before squaring the match on the 18th hole with a par to An's bogey.
The two players matched pars on No. 1 and traded bogeys on No. 2 before An closed the match on the par-4, 451-yard third hole.
The quarterfinal appearance caps an outstanding summer of golf for Ziegler, who won both the Colorado Golf Association Match and Stroke play events earlier this summer.
