Jackson Solem, a recent graduate of Longmont Christian High who played prep golf for Silver Creek, fired a 2-under-par 69 on Tuesday during the second day of competition at the 2017 U.S. Junior Amateur Championship at the par-71, 7,049-yard Flint Hills National Golf Club in Kansas.
Solem's 69 gave him a two-day total of 144, landing him in a tie for 42nd place in the field of 156. The top 64 golfers advance out of the two days of stroke play to advance to match play, which includes six rounds and is scheduled to conclude with a 36-hole finale on Saturday.
Solem, who shot a 75 on day one, finished the second round with seven birdies and five bogeys. He was 4-under after 11 holes on Tuesday, but closed out the round with bogeys on two of his last three holes.
Mead's TJ Shehee missed the cut after shooting 78-80 to finish in a tie for 135th place.
