Smith, McCoy advance at Mid-Am

Mike McCoy is 15th in the Golfweek/amateurgolf.com Player Rankings.

Co-medalists Nathan Smith and Mike McCoy each won two matches Tuesday to advance to the third round of the U.S. Mid-Amateur.

Smith, 31, the 2003 Mid-Am champ and member of the 2009 U.S. Walker Cup team, beat Alan Stearns, 6 and 5, in the first round. Smith birdied two of his final five holes to beat Brandon Smith, 2 and 1, in the second round.

“That was an ESPN Classic,” Smith said of his afternoon match. “He played great. It could have gone either way.”

McCoy, 46, enjoyed a relatively short day with a 4-and-3 win over Robert Crockett and a 7-and-5 victory over Erik Hanson in Round 2.

“I’m glad I’m done,” said McCoy. “Everybody will get a good night’s sleep and be ready to go again. But, I can assure you I will be in bed early.”
