Sean Knapp follows a drive off the ninth tee during the round of 16 at the 2018 U.S. Senior Amateur at Eugene Country Club in Eugene, Ore. on Aug. 28, 2018.

Oakmont native Sean Knapp is set to tee off at 2:05 p.m. Sunday in the second round of stroke play at the U.S. Senior Amateur at Old Chatham Golf Club in Durham, N.C.

The Hannastown Golf Club member shot a 76 (4 over) in Saturday’s first round and landed in a tie for 53rd.

Of the 156 players in the field, the top 64 after Sunday’s second round of stroke play will advance to match play starting Monday.

Competition from the round of 64 will continue through Thursday’s 18-hole championship match.

Knapp captured the 2017 U.S. Senior Amateur championship at Minikhada Club in Minneapolis, Minn., and finished as the runner-up at last year’s event at Eugene (Oregon) Country Club.

With those finishes, as well his top-15 age-eligible points standing in the World Amateur Golf Rankings, Knapp earned exempt status for this year’s tournament.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
