U.S. Amateur Scoring

Costanza, 2020 New Jersey Open Champion and 2021 U.S. Mid-Amateur finalist posted a 2-over par 72 on Tuesday at Arcola Country Club, stroke play co-host of the U.S. Amateur. He rolled in a clutch 25-foot birdie putt on his final hole to clinch a spot in the playoff. 

“I'd be kicking myself if I didn't make that putt and we'll obviously see what happens, but I played really well the last two days,” Costanza reflected of his Tuesday round. “I made a triple yesterday and I made a double today. If I take just a couple strokes off both of those, I'm in clean.”

On Monday, Costanza notched a 3-over par 74 on The Ridgewood Country Club.

Andres Acevedo, a recent Seton Hall University graduate also punched his ticket to match play, posting scores of 69 (-1, Arcola) and 76 (+5, Ridgewood). He will face Dylan Menante in the round of 64 at 9:10 a.m.
