In the Round of 16 Greene sprinted out to a 3 up lead after four holes against No. 16 Charlie Schorgl and he never looked back winning 4&3. The quarterfinal match was more of the same as Greene handled No. 9 Chuck Moore 6&4.

Foth's semifinal challenger, Jeff Mason, won his first match 1 up against No. 6 Dave Cunningham. The quarterfinal match was much more straight forward as he bested No. 19 Ryne Fisher 3&2.
