Defending Champion and Stroke Play Medalist Knocked Out of Senior Match Play

August 28th, 2013

Monitcello's Ron Carter barely grabbed the 16th seed yesterday at the IGA Senior Match Play Championship held at Delaware CC, but did not let that affect his play today. Carter faced number one seed and Defending Champion Sam Till this morning and defeated him 3 and 2, proving anything can happen in match play.

Carter went on to face Albany's Gordie Rees this afternoon and his winning streak was short-lived as Rees defeated him 3 and 2.

Stroke play medalist and number two seed Ted Smith of Wilkinson defeated Elwood's Carl Hobbs this morning, but like Carter he also did not have luck on his side this afternoon.  Indianapolis' Tom Perry was able to defeat Smith 2 and 1 and will advance to tomorrow's Semi-Finals.

Joining Rees and Perry in the Semi-Finals is Valparaiso's Dave Vlasic who knocked out Tim Kuzma, a member here at Delaware CC.  Vlasic defeated Kuzma 3 and 2 this afternoon.  Richmond's Skip Runnels will also advance to the Semi-Finals after defeating Steve Coyne of Carmel 4 and 3.

Rees will face Vlasic and Perry will face Runnels tomorrow morning.  Matches will begin at 9 a.m.
