(AP) Australians Brady Watt and Oliver Goss advanced to the U.S. Amateur semifinals Friday along with Canada's Corey Conners and England's Matt Fitzpatrick, marking the first time that an American has failed to reach the final four.


Watt, a co-medalist in stroke-play qualifying, had a dramatic 1-up victory over 17-year-old Scottie Scheffler of Dallas. Scheffler, the U.S. Junior Amateur champion, had a hole-in-one on the par-3 seventh and trailed only once when Watt made a 5-foot par putt to win the match on the 18th hole.


On Saturday at The Country Club, Watt will face Goss a 5-and-3 winner over Brandon Matthews of Dupont, Pa.


Watt and Goss, close friends who are staying at the same house, planned to attend the Boston Red Sox's game Friday night at Fenway Park against the New York Yankees.


Fitzpatrick, trying to become the first English winner since 1911, beat Adam Ball of Richmond, Va., 4 and 3; and Conners topped co-medalist Neil Raymond of England 5 and 3.
