Quarterfinals ready at Palm Beach Mid-Amateur Match Play
JUPITER, Fla. (Sept. 27, 2014) — Eddie Kenny of Lake Worth and R.J. Nakashian of Palm Beach Gardens, both caddies at Trump International in West Palm Beach, led the march into the quarterfinals of the Tire Kingdom Palm Beach Mid-Amateur Match Play Championship Saturday at Trump National- Jupiter.

Each won two matches and they could meet in the semifinals Sunday afternoon, less than three weeks before they go back to work when Trump International reopens for the season on Oct. 17. For that to happen, they must win their round-of-eight matches Sunday morning.

Kenny, winner of the Palm Beach County Amateur in July, beat Joe Ingarra, 2 and 1, and Kyle Westhorpe, 3 and 1. Nakashian, who has been named Player of the Year several times by the Palm Beach County Golf Association, won a pair of 5 and 4 decisions, over Tom Parker and Michael Burr.

First round matches were delayed when it took most of Friday to complete the qualifying round. Defending champion Daniel Eggertsson lost his first match Saturday morning. Co-medalist Robert Floyd won twice while Pete Williams, the other player to shoot 69 Friday, lost in the second round.

The 29th annual Mid-Amateur drew more than 80 qualifying hopefuls. Weather permitting, the first, second and third flights of 16 will finish Sunday. The 32-man championship flight may not be completed until a later date at the convenience of the two finalists.
