ROLAND, Ark. – Michael Weaver (68-69-71 – 208, -8) and Brandon Hagy (70-70-74 – 214, E) continued play at the Western Amateur in third-round stroke play action Thursday. Weaver is tied for sixth after 54 of 72 stroke-play holes, while Hagy is tied for 36th. The top 16 players at the end of four rounds of stroke play scheduled to conclude Friday will advance to match play beginning Saturday.

Weaver and Hagy were among 53 golfers in the tournament’s field of 156 at the par-72 Alotian Golf Club that advanced to third and fourth-round stroke-play action following 36 holes but both players dropped in the standings from where they started third-round play Thursday with Weaver falling two spots and Hagy 17.

Weaver birdied three of the course’s four par-fives (1, 8, 14) and added another on the par-four second hole Thursday. Two of his three bogeys came on par-threes (4, 16) with the third on the par-four third.

Hagy also birdied three par-fives (8, 14, 17) and had another pair on the par-four third and par-four fourth but also had a double bogey on the par-three 16th and five bogeys on the fifth, seventh, ninth, 15th and 18th holes, all par-fours.

Five other Cal players were in the tournament’s 156-player field but did not advance past the first two rounds that concluded Wednesday, including the trio of Clayton Madey (75-75 – 150, +6), Walker Huddy (75-75 – 150, +6) and Pace Johnson (78-72 – 150, +6) that all tied for 115th. James Yoon (77-77 – 154, +10) and Michael Kim (72-84 – 156, +12) also participated in the first two rounds, finishing tied for 140th and tied for 148th, respectively.

Patrick Rodgers (67-68-66 – 201, -15) leads the event after 54 holes.

Following the conclusion of stroke play Friday, the Round of 16 and quarterfinal matches are scheduled for Saturday with semifinals and finals slated to be contested Sunday.
