The PGA Tour’s “These guys are good" motto can easily be adopted for this year’s U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship quarterfinalists.
Since 2003 and through Wednesday’s third round, the eight players, including two-time Mid-Am champion and USA Walker Cup Team member Nathan Smith, are a combined 63-21 — a .750 winning percentage — in Mid-Am and U.S. Amateur match play.
Smith leads that group with 20 match play wins, followed by Sean Knapp and Tim Hogarth with 10 each. Anthony Barrera and Robby McWilliams, each making their first U.S. Mid-Am match play appearances, have yet to a match-play loss. -- Stuart Hall
