It was a good day for six of the seven Floridians who qualified for match play at the 2010 USGA Senior Amateur. Only Richard Pfeil of Naples lost his opening-round match on Monday at Lake Nona. In fact, Floridians went 4-for-4 in extra-hole matches, including USGA Executive Committee member Steve Smyers of Lakeland, who eliminated 2008 champion George "Buddy" Marucci of Villanova, Pa., in 19 holes.
Rick Woulfe of Ft. Lauderdale had the longest match of the day, going 25 holes to beat Chris Veitch of Newport Beach, Calif. Other extra-hole winners from Florida were Bruce Scamehorn of Winter Haven and David Anthony of Jacksonville.
Past U.S. Amateur champion Stewart Alexander of Gainesville also advanced with a 4-and-3 win over Larry Clark. -- David Shefter
