Nimmer Falls Short Of Match Play At Western Amateur

Bluffton’s Bryson Nimmer carded rounds of 75 and 73 on Thursday to finish at 4-over-par and tied for 48th at the Western Amateur Championship at Skokie Country Club in Glencoe, Ill.

Only the top 16 players moved on to the match play portion of the event after playing 72 holes over three days.

Nimmer was within reach of making the Sweet Sixteen heading into Thursday, but he couldn’t get much going in his first round of the day and closed the round with a bogey and triple-bogey to finish at 4-over.

The Hilton Head Christian Academy product and Clemson All-American endured a wild first nine in his final round, making three birdies and five bogeys before leveling off on his second nine to finish 2-over for the round.
