SAN FRANCISCO, CA (March 11, 2017) -- Each of the top two-seeds went down on Saturday as upsets controlled the story lines on day one of match play at the San Francisco City Championship hosted by TPC Harding Park.

Also going down on Saturday was second-ranked Ashkaan Hakim who fell 2&1 to No. 63 Kyle Wilkinson. In the match Wilkinson took an early lead and never trailed throughout the day.

The highest remaining seed is three-seed Isaiah Choi who ran away with his match defeating No. 62 Wanxi Sun 7&6. Choi won the opening hole and then six consecutive holes from Nos. 5-10 before closing out the matches with halves on Nos. 11 and 12.

On Sunday the San Francisco City Amateur will continue with the Round of 32 and Round of 16.
