Looks like we're going to have another Chamber-of-Commerce day at Lake Nona as the match-play portion of the 2010 USGA Senior Amateur is set to commence. Again there's not a cloud in the sky and just a gentle breeze this morning. The 11-for-10 playoff for the final match-play spots is set to begin on the 10th tee. The first match goes off at 9:30 a.m.
One interesting matchup has two-time USA Walker Cup player and two-time USA Walker Cup captain George "Buddy" Marucci of Villanova, Pa., taking on USGA Executive Committee member Steve Smyers of nearby Lakeland, Fla. Smyers also happens to chair the USGA's International Team Selection Committee, which selects the players for the Walker Cup, Curtis Cup and World Amateur Teams. You think there might be a little USGA talk in that match today?
We'll continue to update you on the playoff, so stay tuned to the blog. -- David Shefter
