With several golfers still on the course, Refioglu’s placing isn’t final. He is currently tied for 110th in the 312-golfer field. The top 64 golfers advance to match play, which determines the U.S. Amateur champion.
Refioglu is scheduled for a 5:30 a.m. (Pacific) tee time off the 10th tee at the AAC’s Highlands Course on Tuesday. He is paired for the second-straight day with American Luke Crapo, a junior at Weber State, and Welshman Rhys Pugh, a senior at East Tennessee State.
