Francoeur found himself three down after the 14th hole and looking like the match was over. 

However, he would win the next three holes and tie the match on the 17th hole with a four. 

On the 18th hole, Francoeur hit an arrant tee shot that found the trees, making it tough for him to get on the green. 

He hit an incredible shot, but the ball bounced over the green. He would end up losing the hole and the match. 

Instead the Mass Amateur final will be Organisak against Nick Maccario. 

The match tees off at 8 a.m.
