An dethroned at U.S. Amateur

Ben An just couldn't put away David Chung.

The Bradenton golfer from Korea was 3-up on Chung nine holes to play in the semifinals of the 110th U.S. Amateur at the Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place, Wash.

An, who won the tournament last year, played his final nine Saturday in the equivalent of 4-over par, while Chung birdied three holes in his comeback.

However, there is still a chance that someone with Bradenton ties could walk off with the U.S. Amateur trophy in tow after Sunday's 36-hole final.

That's because former IMG Academies golfer Peter Uihlein advanced in his semifinal.

Uihlein, whose father is the CEO of Titleist, breezed to a 4-and-3 victory over Patrick Cantlay.

The finals on the course measuring over 7,700 yards begin Sunday morning at 7:00 a.m. local time.
