There were significant upsets in match play during the Round of 64 at the 112th Pacific Northwest Men’s Amateur Championship, being held this week at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, Ore., as two of the top four seeds failed to make it to the next round.

One of the upsets occurred in the first match to go out this morning, when Kyle Schrader of Olympia, and the No. 64 and final seed to make it from the qualifying rounds into the match play bracket, defeated the No. 1 seed Joshua Munn of New Zealand, 2 and 1.

Schrader will be a junior on the men’s golf team at Western Washington University.

The other upset occurred when Jesse Heinly of Bend, Ore., defeated defending champion Shotaro Ban of San Jose, Calif., 1-up.

Heinly and Ban conducted a birdie-fest during their match, combining for eight birdies on the front nine alone.

Along with Munn, Jacob Webb of Issaquah, the No. 3 seed, lost to No. 62 seed Khaled Attieh of Delta, B.C., 2 and 1.

Kennewick’s Riley Hayfield and Nick Mandell each advanced in their matches.

Hayfield defeated Kevin Rei of Sonora, Calif., 4 and 2; Mandell defeated Portland’s John Wise by default. Both players advance to the round of 32 today.

Kennewick’s Daniel Cruzen lost to Hans Reimers of Albany, Ore., 6 and 4; Walla Walla’s Ryan Baumgart lost to Zane Thomas of Las Vegas in 20 holes.
