Paul Dunne is KOd in USA quarter-finals

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Illinois. – NCAA individual champion and United States Walker Cup Team member Bryson DeChambeau will face University of Southern California sophomore Sean Crocker, and Japanese national team member Kenta Kinoshi will meet University of Virginia junior Derek Bard in Saturday’s semi-finals of the 2015 U.S. Amateur Championship at Olympia Fields Country Club.
DeChambeau, 21, of Clovis, California, never trailed in defeating Paul Dunne, from Greystones, Co Wicklow,  Ireland, 3 and 2, in Friday’s quarter-finals.
“I didn't make very many mistakes out there today,” said DeChambeau, who plays in a Ben Hogan-style cap. “I think fortunately for me, it was his mistakes. We are both great players. He's a class act, great guy and I was fortunate enough to play a little bit better today than him.”
