A typical day at The City: A player's car burns up, he returns to win his match the next day
Ben Peters' car burned, but his clubs survived
Ben Peters' car burned, but his clubs survived
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (March 6, 2016) -- Out of the four semi finalists surviving two days of match play -- one of them in pouring San Francisco rain -- Ben Peters had the wildest ride.

As Peters reported on Facebook:

"My white wagon caught on fire on the freeway and as I pulled over it went up pretty quickly. Took the fire department 20-25 minutes to arrive and put it out while 911 gave me a busy signal" ..... "Didn't lose much except for some clothes and a bunch of golf balls. My snowboard was in there too. I did save my clubs tho!"

Stirred, definitely, but shaken -- not enough to take his eyes off the prize. Peters returned to the course Sunday and defeated high school senior Raj Chekuri, 4&2.

He will play Daniel Connolly in next Saturday's first semifinal, while Noah Sheik will play Marcus Potter on the other side of the bracket.
