CLINTON, SC (June 15, 2013) -- Quarterfinal & semifinal results of the 41st South Carolina Amateur Match Play Championship of the Carolinas Golf Association hosted by Musgrove Mill Golf Club in Clinton, SC on Saturday, June 15, 2013 (6788 yards, par 36-36—72, 74.4/147). Charleston, SC native Austin Cody never trailed in either match today and has advanced to the finals on the South Carolina Amateur Match Play Championship. “I scraped it around in qualifying and was 2 down with 3 to play in my first match on Friday”, Cody said. “I won the last 3 holes in that match to win and have been playing solid since.”
Cody will square off against 2011 runner-up Adam Goins in the championship match. “Back for revenge!” Goins joked as he left the course. The Gaffney, SC native won both his matches today in impressive fashion, ending up 9-under par over 34 holes of golf. “I hit it good today and really felt good about my game.” He was 3-down in his Round of 16 match on Friday after 9 but won 3 holes in a row including 2 birdies that kick started his good play.
Interesting note of the day #1: Cody and Goins both played identical matches today. Both played 18 holes in the morning winning their respective matches 1-up; and both played 16 holes in the afternoon winning 4&2.
Interesting note of the day #2: Both players should be familiar with each other; they played 2 rounds of stroke play qualifying together on Wednesday & Thursday. Cody bested Goins by a shot in stroke play, and tomorrow should come down to the wire again.
