Incoming UCLA freshman Patrick Cantlay won a pair of matches Thursday to advance to the quarterfinals of the 110th U.S. Amateur at Chambers Bay in Washington.

Junior Alex Shi Yup Kim lost 4&3 to defending champion Byeong-Hun An in the second round.

In his afternoon match, Cantlay nearly lost a 4-up lead with five to play against Connor Arendell of Cape Coral, FL. After halving the 13th hole, Cantlay was 4-up. But Arendell came up with a huge birdie at the par-4, 521-yard 14th to cut the lead to 3-up. The competitors halved the long par-3 15th before Arendell won the 16th and 17th holes with clutch pars. At the 605-yard 18th, both players made par and Cantlay advanced to the quarterfinals.

In his first match on Thursday, Cantlay avenged a four-hole stretch in which he nearly lost a big lead in the first round. On Wednesday with a 6-up lead, he played holes 11-14 in four-over par. In Thursday's second round, he played the same stretch in one-under par to maintain his advantage in a tight match. At the 15th, he went 3-up with a par, while his opponent, Blayne Barber of Lake City FL, made bogey. The 16th was halved and Cantlay advanced to the third round with a 3&2 victory.
