They took control when Zheng birdied the 16th hole with a 6-iron from 12 feet to restore a 2-up advantage, and Kittleson & Stoltz missed the 17th hole to extend the match.

Kittleson, an amateur who was reinstated, finished as runner-up in USGA events for the third consecutive time. He and Stoltz both lost the championship match in the U.S. Last year, he and Stoltz lost the championship match of the U.S. Amateur.
