Just one third-round match still on the course. Kenny Cook has a 1-up lead on Matt Smith through 15 holes. Cook is working on a marathon day of golf. If his match goes the full 18 holes, he would have played 2 1/2 matches covering 40 holes. He had to return to the course this morning to finish up his first-round match against Michael Castleforte. He played three holes and then went out and played 2010 U.S. Mid-Amateur semifinalist Sean Knapp. The two went 18 holes before Cook prevailed, 2 up.
Cook's wife, Lisa, also competed this week at the U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur, but failed to make match play. Word was she was going to fly to Houston if her husband advanced far in the championship. We could see her on Wednesday if Cook pulls out his match.
Last year Carol Robertson reached the Women's Mid-Am finals, while her husband failed to make match play at the Mid-Amateur.
