CAMDEN, SC (May 5, 2017) - The quarterfinals of the Carolinas Four-Ball have been set at Camden Country Club with the top-seed still alive.

Stroke play medalists and 2013 Carolinas Four-Ball champions Paul Tucker of Waxhaw, N.C. & Brent Roof of Columbia, S.C. won both of their matches and advanced to the quarterfinals to be played on Saturday. In the round of 16, Tucker and Roof won “a dogfight” against Mark Hodges of Belmont, N.C. and Andrew Smith of Charlotte, N.C. After Hodges/Smith squared the match on No. 14, Roof drained a 40-foot birdie putt on No. 15. Tucker then got in on the action making a 25-footer on No. 16 that helped propel them to a 2&1 victory.

Higher seeds dominated the Round of 32 matches, but in the Round of 16, two upsets knocked out the five and six seeds. 21-seed Matt Carter/Weston Bell defeated 5-seed James Lightsey/Thomas Rea, 4&2. 22-seed Matthew Laydon/Chris Mitchell defeated 6-seed Ryan Reynolds/Parker Dudley, 5&4.

Also advancing to the quarterfinals are juniors Michael Childress/Landsdon Robbins and Ryan Marter/Jack Parrott. Marter/Parrott will face father-son duo Neil Harrell/Logan Harrell who advanced to the quarterfinals after winning their match in 20 holes.

Rounding out the quarterfinal contenders are NC State teammates Justin Hood/Jake McBride and the mid-amateur team of Daniel Neveu/Sherrill Britt.

The quarterfinal matches are set to begin at 8:00am at Camden Country Club on Saturday morning.
