Max Jackson Misses Match Play Cut at U.S. Junior Amateur

Rhode Island’s Max Jackson missed the match play cut at the U.S. Junior Amateur on Tuesday at Bandon Trails in Oregon. 

After an even par round at Bandon Dunes on Monday, Jackson needed at worst a 1-over par round on Tuesday to advance to match play.

One-over probably would have gotten him into a playoff for the final match play spots. 

Jackson posted a second round 77 (6-over par) to miss the cut by five shots.

Jackson’s 2nd Round 

The second round was delayed by about two hours due to fog, so Jackson didn’t end up teeing off until after 4 p.m. local time. 

Going off the first hole, Jackson opened the round with a bogey on the 367 yard par 4. 

He then rattled off a string of pars, before three straight bogeys on six, seven and eight put him behind the cutline at the turn. 

On the back side, Jackson couldn’t summon any magic. 

He bogeyed the tenth hole and then strung together seven straight pars before closing with a bogey on the 18th hole to shoot 77.
