FAYETTEVILLE – Razorbacks William Buhl, Luis Garza and Tyson Reeder had their run at the 2019 U.S. Amateur Championship end after two rounds of stroke play.

Buhl and Reeder had to finish round two early Wednesday morning with Buhl playing two holes and Reeder three. Buhl was one of 27 players to finish tied for 62nd at +5 (69-76=145) and proceeded to a playoff Wednesday with three players moving on to Match Play. Buhl was eliminated on the first playoff hole.

Garza (75-73=148) and Reeder (71-78=149) missed to the cut line by three and four strokes, respectively.
