Temple golfer Andrew Paysse finished one stroke short of putting himself in a two-man playoff for a spot in the U.S. Amateur.
The top three finishers in Tuesday’s qualifier at The Lakes of Castle Hills in the Dallas suburb of Lewisville earned slots in next month’s U.S. Amateur in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
Paysse, a Belton graduate and rising junior at Texas A&M, finished with a two-round total of 139, one shot behind third-place finisher Redmond Lyons of San Antonio.
Paysse was only three shots behind winner Parker Coody of Plano.
Paysse is the first alternate for the U.S. Amateur if any of the top three finishers from Tuesday is unable to play.
