Barrett tops Liu, advances in US amateur golf
For the second time in three years, Chelso Barrett of Surry sent the former U.S. Junior Amateur champion home with a 3-up victory Wednesday in the round of 64 during the 113th U.S. Amateur Championship in Brookline, Mass.
Liu eclipsed Tiger Woods as the youngest U.S. Junior champ in 2010 when he won the title as a 14-year-old. Liu joined Woods (1991-92) and Willie Wood (1977-78) as the only junior golfers ever to win two stroke play medalist honors in the U.S. Junior Am tournament.
"Jim is a real good player, someone you can learn from by just watching him play," said Barrett yesterday. "Today (Tuesday) I just tried to shoot par and it worked for me."
"On both holes he just hit some shots into the trees and I was able to capitalize," said Barrett, who parred his last 10 holes including the par 5, 12th hole to take the lead for good.
