After defeating two match play opponents 1UP, McManus was eliminated 6&5 by Kyle Beversdorf of Plymouth, Minn., on Thursday.
McManus qualified for the match play portion after finishing tied for 21st with an even-par 142 after shooting 74-68 last Monday and Tuesday.
It was previously reported in the AFN that McManus was eliminated in the round of 64 because of a reporter’s error.
