SPARTANBURG, S.C. (May 30, 2014) -- After the first two rounds of Match Play at the Country Club of Spartanburg, Medalists Mike Hartin & Cory Taylor are still in the hunt while the Defending Champion team of Brad Thorne & Will Woodard were eliminated 3&2 by the 2012 Winners, Walt Todd & Brandon Truesdale. In the morning matches, playing their first competitive round of the competition, the Defending Champs posted a 2&1 victory over TJ Walsh & Justin Hornick to move on. Chris Mitchell & Jarrett Grimes started hot and gained a 6&4 victory over Eddie Hargett & Ben Jansen. One match went into extra holes and Stan Sill & Josh McMillan managed to get by Taylor Hough and Tyler Macolly with a birdie on the 20th hole.
In the afternoon, Mother Nature became a part of the equation as a 45 minute lightning delay halted play with three matches left on the course. Before the delay, the Defending Champs were ousted and the Medalists moved on. Sam Jackson & Carter Davis needed 19 holes and an eagle on the par 5 first to make the Quarter Finals. The largest margin of victory for the day was Geno Berchiatti & Robert Lutomski with a 7&6 win. After the delay the last two CC of Spartanburg teams were knocked out by Josh Branyon & Matt Davis on their 20th hole and Jeff Pope and Thomas Todd with a 1 up win.
Quarter finals will begin on Saturday morning beginning at 8.00 a.m. Semi-final matches will be played in the afternoon.
