McCoy, DeMoss, Healy Eliminated At U.S. Am
Aug. 14, 2014

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. --- Georgia's three participants in the match play portion of the United States Amateur Championship were eliminated on Wednesday.

Lee McCoy, the No. 1 seed after sharing co-medalist honors in stroke play, fell on the 19th hole to Pittsburgh, Pa., native Nathan Smith. Smith, the last player to make the 64-man match play field, is a four-time U.S. Mid-Amateur champion and is a three-time Walker Cup Team member.

Playing in his 14th U.S. Amateur, Smith squared the match with a birdie on the water-fronted par-3 17th hole and converted a critical up-and-down for par on the 18th. Smith won in 19 holes by sinking a 3½-foot par-saving putt.

"I saw the list and I saw four-time Mid-Am winner and a guy that's played in the Masters four times, and I was like, `I get to play the grizzled veteran in the first round. Fantastic,'" McCoy said. "I don't think he had his best stuff today and neither did I. I didn't play nearly as well as I did the last two days. He made some incredible up-and-downs and he just scored unbelievably well, like a veteran would."

Cheng-Tsung Pan, a two-time U.S. Amateur quarterfinalist from Chinese Taipei, defeated freshman Zach Healy 4&2. Senior Mookie DeMoss fell to Roman Robledo of Harlingen, Texas, 1-up.
