Graham of FSU ousted in extras

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Florida State's Wesley Graham was eliminated from the U.S. Amateur Public Links tournament Friday, losing his quarterfinal to Kevin Phelan in 21 holes.

Phelan, of North Florida, was 1 down until No. 18 when his par forced extra holes. His 7-footer on the third extra hole won it.

In the semifinals, Lion Kim birdied his final two holes to beat Phelan, and David McDaniel finished Josh Anderson with a par as light rain fell on the last hole.

Three of the four quarterfinals went to extra holes. In addition to the Phelan-Graham match, McDaniel beat Harris English in 19 holes and Anderson needed one extra hole to eliminate Darren Wallace.

PGA: Robert Garrigus shot 7-under 65 to share the second-round lead with Matt Bettencourt at 10-under 134 at the Reno-Tahoe Open in Reno, Nev.

Bettencourt led after the first round at 66 and had a three-stroke lead with three holes to go in the second. But he bogeyed the last two to card 69 while Garrigus added birdie down the stretch.

The two, each bidding for his first win on the PGA Tour, were two strokes ahead of John Mallinger, who shot 67 and was third at 136. Dunedin's Bob Heintz was at 137 along with three others after shooting 68.

Chad Campbell and former Florida star Chris DiMarco were four strokes off the lead at 138.

FLORIDA OPEN: Devin Hernandez of Seminole led at 2 under at Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club's Island Course after one round in the Florida Open. Hernandez, who plays at USF, was at 70 along with fellow amateur Patrick Lamb, whose score of 1 under came at the par-71 Copperhead Course. The field of 156 will each play 18 holes at each course before the field is cut to the low 60 and ties for Sunday's final round.

FUTURES: Clearwater's Jenny Gleason (5-under 65) was tied for second after one round at the New England Golf Classic in Bloomfield, Conn., three behind leader Gerina Mendoza.
