GOHSEN, Ky. — Last year's winner of the Kentucky Match Play Championship received an automatic exemption into the match play portion this time around. Denver Haddix of Lexington waltzed through his opening two matches on Tuesday to advance to the quarterfinals where he'll face Davis Boland of Louisville.

The medalist during stroke play qualifying was granted the No. 2 seed. Cooper Musselman, a sophomore at the University of Kentucky, also advanced through his first two rounds — but did so with strife. He won on the 18th hole during his morning match and followed that up with a 21-hole bout with Nick McCarthy in the afternoon.

Andy Roberts will be his opponent during Wednesday morning's quarterfinal matchup.

Among other players still remaining are Musselman's senior teammate David Snyder of Somerset and former Murray State golfer Hunter York.

Quarterfinal and semifinal matches will take place Wednesday at Harmony Landing Country Club before the 36-hole final concludes the tournament on Thursday.
