A Dallas area semifinal at U.S. Amateur?

August, 26, 2011
The quarterfinals are going on right now at the U.S. Amateur Championship and depending on how things go, we could have two Dallas area golfers facing off in the semifinals on Satuday morning.

Dallas' Jordan Spieth advanced to the quarterfinal with a 7 & 5 win this morning and is currently playing Jack Senior from England in the quarterfinals. Denton's Kelly Kraft, who played golf at SMU and went to Denton Ryan, needed 23 holes to get past Blake Biddle from Illinois. Kraft just began his quarterfinal against Patrick Rodgers of Indiana.

If Spieth and Kraft win, they will play each other at 8:15 a.m. tomorrow at Erin Hills in Wisconsin. We'll update you when both players have completed their quarterfinal matches.
