Austin Squires from Union, Kentucky, walks to the first tee on Course No. 2 at the 2019 U.S. Amateur Championship at the Pinehurst Resort and Country Club. 

Austin Squires has continued his dramatic run at the U.S. Amateur at Pinehurst.

Squires, from Kentucky, had to go extra holes today in the round of 32 to earn a berth in the round of 16 that is underway at Pinehurst No. 2. He stopped Stefano Mazzoli of Italy in 19 holes this morning.

At one time he was 3 down to Mazzoli.

Alex Fitzpatrick of England also went extra holes before topping Jack Trent of Australia in 21 holes.
