PEBBLE BEACH – Bailey Creek’s Dean Prince poured in four birdies en route to a 1-over 72 at Poppy Hills to qualify for the NCGA Senior Match Play Championship. Monday’s qualifying was for the final 16 spots in the 32-man Senior Match Play bracket. The first 16 spots were seeded by this season’s NCGA Amateur Tour Senior Points list. Prince grabbed early medalist honors, edging Michael Kelly from the Course at Wente Vineyards by one stroke.
Michael Wiechers, Ron Johnson (pictured right), Kimble Cater, and Joey Ferrari all posted 76s to finish well within the cutline, which finished at 79. The first round of match play will be played at Poppy Hills, with the rest of the championship moving to Spyglass Hill.
