Brandon Hagy, the lone member of the talented five-man University of California team to survive the cut and a semifinalist last year, advanced with a 19-hole victory over Portugal’s Ricardo Gouveia.
Gouveia, an Amateur quarterfinalist last year, made a 30-foot putt on 18 to force the extra hole, but Nagy won with a par on the first extra hole.
“I’m the last Bear in the field,” he said. “I’m confident in match play. I’m right there and just got to keep doing what I’m doing.”
