WAUKESHA - Nick Krattiger made the cut after the second round of the 108th annual Wisconsin State Amateur Golf Championship at the Merrill Hills Country Club, Tuesday.

Krattiger shot a 1-under-70 and is in a seven-way tie for 16th place with a score of 147 for the tournament.

"I was much more focused," he said. "I knew I had it in me. I made a lot more putts."

Monroe alum Brent Quade missed the cut by a heartbreaking one shot and finished 72nd. Quade sputtered to a 10-over-81 in the second round and finished with a 155.

"I thought it was a pretty poor round of golf," Quade said. "It was a pathetic effort of concentration."

It was a complete turnaround for Krattiger on Tuesday after shooting a 6-over-77 in the first round Monday.

This is Krattiger's fourth WSGA tournament and it's the fourth time he has made the cut.

Krattiger recorded birdies on No. 10 and No. 16 and had putts to save par on eight holes.

Quade struggled in the second round as he bogeyed 10 holes and shot par on eight of them.

"I was thinking about what to fix instead of following my routine," he said. "The course is a lot tougher today. I'm just happy to be off the course."

Brent Wong of the Whitnall Golf Club shot a 2-under-69 and leads the tournament (137) after the second round. He has a two stroke lead on Mark Bemowski of Kettle Moraine Golf Club.
