TRUCKEE, Calif. — Qualifying medalist Jim Liu advanced to the second round of the match play in the U.S. Junior Amateur on Wednesday, beating Matthew Lowe with an 8-foot birdie putt on the 19th hole.

The 17-year-old, the 2010 champion and 2012 runner-up from Smithtown, N.Y., needed the extra hole to finish off the 17-year-old Lowe, from Farmingdale, N.Y., after losing the 18th with a bogey.

"That's golf. You can't expect to play well every day," Liu said. "It's about the days where you don't have your best game and you just grind it out. I just tried to stay patient out there. As long as you have more holes to play you have a shot. That's the mindset I had."

Liu will face John Augenstein of Owensboro, Ky., in the second round at Martis Camp Club. Augenstein beat Matthew Perrine of Austin, Texas, 5 and 4.

Second-seeded Cameron Young of Scarborough, N.Y., also advanced, beating fellow 16-year-old Matt Echelmeier of Columbia, Mo., 3 and 1.
