ERIN, Wis. — South Carolina sophomore Blaine Woodruff carded an even-par 70 in the second round of the 111th U.S. Amateur Championship on Tuesday at Blue Mound Golf and Country Club.

Woodruff’s two-day total of 147 (77-70, +5) was good enough for tie for 165th place. He missed the cut of the top 64 players to advance to the match play portion of the tournament.

Woodruff was among 157 players to finish the second round on Tuesday after a thunderstorm caused a three hour and 40 minute delay. The remaining participants completed their rounds Wednesday morning. The Acworth, Ga., native opened his day on the 10th hole and produced three straight pars before bogeying hole No. 13. After four more pars, Woodruff made the turn at even with a birdie on the 18th hole, a 563-yard par 5.

Woodruff moved into red numbers with a birdie on hole No. 2 and he went to 2-under on the day with another birdie at the seventh. But a double bogey on hole No. 8 put Woodruff back to even par where he finished the day.

Woodruff’s focus will now shift to the Gamecocks’ 2011-12 season, which begins on Sept. 9 in the Carpet Capital Collegiate at The Farm Golf Club in Dalton, Ga.
