Matthias Schwab defeated former BYU golfer Zac Blair, 2 & 1, Thursday morning to advance to the Round of 16 at the United State Golf Amateur.
Schwab, an Austrian who will begin his freshman year at Vanderbilt next week, will play another round later today as the tournament nears Friday's quarterfinal round. As was the case in his opening win yesterday, Schwab trailed Blair early but won the last three holes.
Schwab will play the winner of the Brandon Hagy (Cal) vs Scottie Scheffler (2013 US Jr. Amateur Champion) match this afternoon.
