Oland Misses Cut at US Amateur

Midwestern State senior Derek Oland stumbled on the back nine on Tuesday and missed the cut at the 2014 United States Amateur Championship at the Atlanta (Ga.) Athletic Club.

The senior from McKinney, Texas/Boyd posted a 5-over-par 76 on the par 71, 7,374-yard Highlands Course to finish stroke play at 5-over 148.

Oland started the second round with a double-bogey on the par 4 first hole, but quickly recovered with back-to-back birdies on No. 3 and No. 4 to return to even-par.

The Mustang made the turn even-par before running into the brick wall.

After pars on No. 10 and 11, Oland bogeyed the par-5 12th hole and followed it with a bogey on the par-4 13th.

The round fell apart on the par-4 14th, when the senior had a double-bogey six. He dropped another stroke on with a bogey on No. 16.

The collapse dropped Oland from a tie for 39th at one point to missing the cut to 64 players for match play.

Oland is the first Midwestern State golfer to qualify and compete in the nation's amateur national championship.

Arkansas junior Taylor Moore leads the field after stroke play, firing a 2-under 69 on Tuesday for an 8-under 135.
