BREMERTON, Wash. — Madison’s Seth Sweet missed the cut for match play at the U.S. Junior Amateur Golf Championship late Tuesday after making a double bogey on the first playoff hole.

Sweet finished his second round at 152 on Tuesday after shooting 75 which left him in a tie along the cut line with a dozen other players.

“There were 12 people going for 10 spots,” Sweet said. “I doubled the first hole.”

Sweet, 16, was happy with his play as well as his second round score.

“It was a pretty tough course,” Sweet of the 7,133-yard layout at the Gold Mountain Golf Club. “I had a rough start the second day. I was three-over on the easier nine.”

Sweet turned his match around with a birdie on the course’s toughest hole, a 481-yard par 4.

“I three-putted to finish my round, which hurt because I wouldn’t have been in a playoff,” he said.

Sweet plans to play in the New England Invitational in Brattleboro, Vt., next month as well the Maine junior championship.
