Clovis native Bryson DeChambeau survived two more rounds of match play at the U.S. Amateur Public Links championships to advance to Friday's quarterfinals.
DeChambeau, a junior at Southern Methodist, picked up a 1-up victory in the Round of 16 against Tyler McDaniel of Manchester, Kent., sinking four birdies and making par on the final six holes to preserve his win at the Sand Creek Station Golf Course in Newton, Kan.
DeChambeau earlier defeated Sam Horsefield of England during the Round of 32 with a 3-and-2 victory after drilling five birdies on the 7,365-yard, par-71 course.
DeChambeau, a former Fresno Bee All-Star while playing golf at Clovis East High, will next face Byron Meth of San Diego at 5:45 a.m. PDT Friday. Should DeChambeau win, he'll advance to play the winner between Rico Hoey of Rancho Cucamonga and Jess Bonneau of Houston later Friday.
The championship is scheduled for 5 a.m. PDT Saturday.
