COLUMBUS, GA (April 12, 2017) - Wright Waddell of Columbus finished stroke play qualifying at 4-under-par 138 (70-68) to earn the top seed at the Georgia Senior Match Play Championship. The sixth edition of this event is taking place at Green Island Country Club, April 11-14.

Waddell will face Mark Benefield of Peachtree Corners in his opening match on Thursday at 8:00 a.m. A playoff was needed for the final two spots; Benefield and Jorge Cora of Atlanta made par on the first playoff hole (#1) to qualify.

In the Super Senior division for those ages 65 and above, Frank Costanzo of Savannah earned medalist honors with his 5-over-par 147 in stroke play qualifying. He will take on Arch Arnold of Columbus at 8:00 a.m.
