Ross Kellett and Eddie Pepperell through to

quarter-finals in Argentina

Ross Kellett (Colville Park) and Eddie Pepperell (Drayton Park) are through to the quarter-finals of the 115th Argentina men's open amateur championship at Buenoa Aires Golf Club. They are in opposite halves of the draw so a Scotland v England 36-hole final on Sunday is still a possibility.
Kellett, runner-up in the European amateur championship this past summer, and the No 4 seed in this week's tournament, had a commendable one-hole win over Tomas Cocha, the Argentina player who was strongly fancied by the locals to beat the man from Motherwell. Cocha qualified in 13th position.
Ross will now Australian Bryden Macpherson, the No 21 qualifier, for a place in the afternoon (local time) semi-finals. Macpherson won on the 12th green against Italy's Niccolo Quintarelli in the round of the last 16.
Pepperell, the No 19 qualifier, also had a very good victory. He had a runaway win - by 6 and 5 - over the No 3 seed from Spain, Ignacio Elvira.
The quarter-finals and semi-finals are being played over 18 holes today (Saturday) with the final over two rounds on Sunday.
Later results on Friday:
Philipp Westermann (Germany) (No 32 qualifier) bt Sean Einhaus (Germany) (No 16) 1 hole.
Guilliaume Cambis (France) (No 41 qualifier) bt Johann Lopez Lazaro (France) (No 8 qualifier) 6 and 5.
