SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. -- Three-time All-American Dustin Johnson fired a two-round total of five-over 145 and made it through to the 64-player match play at the 2007 U.S. Amateur at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, Calif., but fell in the opening round. Johnson fell 1-up to 19th-seed Ricky Jones in the round of 64. Johnson had a 2-up lead on the front nine but fell behind as much as two holes on the back. Johnson squared the match at No. 12 but lost at 13 and 14 to fall behind two holes with four to play. He picked up the 15th hole with a par and after the two halved 16 and 17, Johnson birdied the 18th hole. However, Jones had the answer with a birdie of his own to secure the match and advance.
Two other Chanticleers had qualified for the U.S. Amateur. Senior-to-be Lindsay Renolds shot 147 for the 36 holes to tie for 59th and make a 17-man playoff for the final six spots in match play. However, Renolds was unable to get one of the elusive slots. Junior-to-be Cameron Hooper tied for 206th in the 314-player field at 15-over 155 in his two rounds of play.
