Franklin Regional grad Palmer Jackson advances at USGA Amateur

Paul Schofield

Palmer Jackson had his troubles on Pinehurst No. 2 during the second round of stroke play qualifying at the United States Golf Association’s Amateur on Tuesday.

He shot a 6-over 76 and saw his consecutive rounds in the 60s end at nine.

It was a different story for the 2019 Franklin Regional graduate and Notre Dame commit on Wednesday on No. 2 during match play.

Jackson was 3-under through 16 holes in his match against Hayden Springer of Trophy Club in Texas and rallied for a 3 and 2 victory in the Round of 64.

After going 2-down after seven holes, Jackson won five of the next seven holes, recorded birdies on Nos. 11, 12 and 14, to take command of the match. He had five birdies.

Jackson advances to the Round of 32 on Thursday where he’ll fave Jacob Solomon of Auburn, Ala., at Pinehurst Resort and Country Club in Pinehurst, N.C. Solomon defeated Cameron Young of Scarborough, N.Y., 4 and 3.

Greensburg native and West Virginia junior Mark Goetz didn’t finish his second round and played Wednesday morning. He finished with a 16-over, 156.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
