Co-medalists Scott Harvey and Brad Nurski each won two matches Tuesday at Saucon Valley to reach the U.S. Mid-Amateur quarterfinals in Bethlehem, Pa.
The 36-year-old Harvey, a real estate property manager from Greensboro, N.C., beat Scott McNeil of Philadelphia 1 up in the second round and topped Kevin Wolf of Lodi, Calif., 4 and 2 in the third.
"I played a lot more solid (in the afternoon), hit a lot of fairways and a lot of really good shots," Harvey said. "I kept my driver in play most of the day. You just have to stay away from mistakes out here. Mistakes will turn into bogeys real quick."
In the upper-bracket quarterfinals, Harvey will play Denver Haddix of Lexington. In the third round, Haddix beat Andrew Wyatt of Midland, Texas, 3 and 1. Haddix defeated Michael Martin of Scottsdale, Ariz., 2 up in his first match of the day.
Never miss a local story.
Haddix, a real estate appraiser, was runner-up by one shot to Tom Campbell at the Kentucky State Amateur in June at Cherry Blossom Golf & Country Club in Georgetown.
The 35-year-old Nurski, a railroad conductor and switchman from St. Joseph, Mo., beat Michael Castleforte of Chicago 2 and 1 in the morning and edged Don Bell of Port Orange, Fla., 4 and 3 in the afternoon.
