Semifinals set at OGA State Amateur

ADVERTISEMENT

Defending champion Brendon Jelley played holes 15-17 for the first time in the tournament in his 3 and 1 semifinal victory over Chris Laughlin of Edmond, but the redshirt sophomore at Oklahoma State still looks unstoppable as he tries to repeat in the Oklahoma Golf Association State Amateur Championship.

 Jelley won his round of 16 match 5 and 4 over Luke Phillips of Edmond on the difficult Oak Tree National layout. He will face Bill Bishop Jr. of Oklahoma City in the semifinals Wednesday morning.

Bishop outlasted Eric Kline of Ponca City in 21 holes after edging Tate Williamson of Broken Arrow 1 up.

The other semifinal will pit Jeff Coffman of Oklahoma City against Griffin Pierce of Edmond and the University of Oklahoma.

Coffman reached the semifinals with a 1 up victory over Heath Myers of Kingfisher, while Pierce edged high school student McCain Schellhardt of Edmond 1 up in 20 holes.

Play was delayed by rain for two hours. Live scoring for the semifinals and 12:30 p.m. finals will be available on www.okgolf.org.
