Past champs fall at Colo. Sr. Match Play
AURORA, Colo. (June 12, 2013) -- No. 1 seed Eric Hoos and most of the other top seeds won their opening matches Tuesday in the CGA Senior Match Play Championship, but four former champs were ousted in the round of 64 at Cannongate at Blackstone in Aurora.

Hoos, the University of Denver men's golf coach from Highlands Ranch Golf Club, defeated Bill Woodward of Cherry Hills Country Club 4 and 3.

The top six seeds won on Tuesday, but former champions David Delich and John Olive of the Broadmoor Golf Club, Kent Moore of Cherry Hills, and Ken Sady of Eagle Ranch Golf Course were eliminated.

Olive has won the Senior Match Play four times, and Delich twice. Delich was also the CGA Senior Player of the Year in 2012.

Meanwhile, in the CGA Super-Senior Match Play for golfers 60 and older, defending champion Bob Sims of Canongate Colorado scored a 5-and-4 victory over Michael Clark of Heritage at Westmoor in Tuesday's round of 16.

Also advancing in the Super-Senior Match Play were former Senior Match Play champions Patrick Mooney of Colorado Golf Club and Roger Gunderson of Aurora Hills Golf Course.

The Senior Match Play and Super-Senior Match Play will continue through Friday.
