CAMDEN, SC (May 5, 2016) - Zachary Bishop of Travelers Rest, S.C. - Matt Carter of Easley, S.C. earned medalist honors with a two-day total seven-under par 133. They are seeded number one for the match play portion of the championship.

The cut line fell at one-over par 141. 34 teams reached that number so a 7-for-5 team playoff took place to decide the remaining seeds of the match play portion of the championship. The five teams who earned their spot via the playoff were Andrew Smith – Mark Hodges, Sammy Truett – Bert Atkinson, Travis Hall – Thomas Lee, Jr., Brett Parlier – Jesus Espina- Velosa and Cary Phillips – Ryan Reynolds.

Round of 32 matches begin at 8:00am off #1 and #10 tees at Camden Country Club on Friday morning.

A handful of former champions advanced to match play: three-time champion Bert Atkinson-Sammy Truett (2001, 02, 05), Robert Dargan-David Dargan (2006), Paul Tucker-Brent Roof (2013), Matthew Crenshaw (2012, 14) playing with new partner Banks Wood, Jr., and Blair Bowland (2012) playing with new partner Dustin Moore.
