The semifinal matchups are set at the 48th South Carolina Amateur Match Play Championship. Henry Augenstein of Columbia, S.C. is set to take on three-time champion Todd White of Roebuck, S.C. in one of the matchups, while stroke-play medalist Logan Sowell of Kershaw, S.C. and Harry Reynolds of Greenville, S.C. battle it out for a spot in the finals on the other side of the bracket.

 

Augenstein and White both took care of business winning 3&1 this morning. Augenstein, the rising senior on Wofford College’s men’s golf team, trailed 2018 champion Christian Salzer of Sumter, S.C. by two holes through six, but a win on the seventh hole helped spark a comeback effort as Augenstein would win five of the last 11 to clinch the match 3 up on No. 17. 

 

As for White, he too trailed by two holes early on in his match, and a birdie on No. 5 began his run. White, who won the South Carolina Amateur Match Play Championship in 1991, 2004 and 2010, clinched his match against Nicholas Mayfield of Rock Hill, S.C. 3&1 with a par on No. 17.

 

Sowell and Reynolds, the two earliest matches off the tee this morning, took a little bit longer to secure their victories. Sowell, a rising senior on the men’s golf team at College of Charleston, did not lead his match against Tyler Gray of Lugoff, S.C. until things were all said and done. He made par on No. 17 to tie the match, and a birdie on No. 18 clinched the win.

 

Reynolds was the only one of today’s victories that held a lead at any point during the front nine, and just like the rest of them, he was in a close match at the turn. All four winners either were tied with or trailed their opponent when they headed to No. 10 tee. Reynolds took a two-hole lead over Austin Duncan of York, S.C. by winning holes No. 10, 11 and 12, and held on to his 1 up lead down the stretch for the win.

 

Augenstein and White are scheduled to tee off at 12:30 p.m. followed by Sowell and Reynolds at 12:45 p.m. Check back later for a full update with quotes and results from the entire day at Orangeburg Country Club.
