Harvard sophomore Brian Ma, Jimmy Castles and Kevin Sze are all headed to this year’s U.S. Amateur Championship after advancing through a 36-hole qualifier held Monday at Almaden CC.
Ma led the way, carding a medalist-earning score of 12-under 132. In the afternoon, Ma, a former winner of the San Francisco City, really got going. He’d post an 8-under 64 featuring seven birdies and an eagle (par-5 7th). Castles moved on with a score of 134 after back-to-back rounds of 67. Sze shot 68-67 to finish at 135.
Sean Yu was first alternate after coming in at 137.
