After finishing in a tie for 20th place in the stroke play event, Cheboygan’s PJ Maybank III had a shot to do some damage in the match play portion of the United States Junior Amateur Championship in North Carolina.
However, Georgia’s Carter Loflin had other things in mind.
Loflin went on to capture a 4-and-2 victory over the Cheboygan golfer in a round of 64 matchup during the U.S. Amateur held at the Country Club of North Carolina on Wednesday, July 21.
The defeat ended the week for Maybank, who made it to the match play round after a score of 143 during his opening two rounds earlier in the week.
Maybank was one of 264 total players competing in the U.S. Junior Am, a United States Golf Association (USGA) event.
Maybank qualified for the event by finishing in a tie for first place during the U.S. Junior Amateur qualifier held at TPC Dearborn back in June.
Winning the title was Alabama’s Nicholas Dunlap, who earned a 3-and-2 victory over Mississippi’s Cohen Trolio in a 36-hole final held on Saturday.
Winning the stroke play title was Virginia’s Kelly Chinn, who finished at 11-under through two rounds, including an eight-under 64 in his opening round, on Monday, July 19.
