Former Valencia Viking Max Homa saw his run at the 2013 U.S. Amateur Championship come to a close on Tuesday

Homa posted a 1-over 71 at the par-70 Charles River Country Club in Newton, Mass., to finish with a two-day overall score of 9-over.

That put him in a tie for 146th place and well behind the projected cut. After two rounds of stroke play, only the top 64 players out of 312 move on to match play, which begins today.

The projected cut after Tuesday was at 4-over.

Stroke play took place at both Charles River Country Club and The Country Club in nearby Brookline, Mass.

Homa opened the tournament by shooting an 8-over 78 at The Country Club on Monday.

The former University of California, Berkeley golfer finished with five birdies, eight bogeys and three double bogeys across the two rounds.

This will go down as a disappointing finish for Homa, who is the 11th ranked amateur in the world and is coming off an individual NCAA championship in May. He later qualified for and played in the U.S. Open in June.

Homa has played in the three previous U.S. Amateurs and he’s made the cut twice, advancing as far as the final eight in match play in 2010.

Last year, he made it to the round of 32.

Because Homa intends to turn professional in September after playing in the Walker Cup, this marks his final year of eligibility at the U.S. Amateur, which consistently features the most prestigious group of amateur golfers in the country.
