WEST CALDWELL, N.J. -- Jim Holtgrieve topped the 64 match-play qualifiers Sunday in the USGA Senior Amateur Championship, shooting a 3-under 68 to beat Stan Kinsey by a stroke.

The 64-year-old Holtgrieve, from St. Louis, had a 6-under 136 total at Mountain Ridge Country Club. He won the 1981 U.S. Mid-Amateur and captained the losing 2011 U.S. Walker Cup team.

The 58-year-old Kinsey, from Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., shot a 71.
