The quarter final matches are complete. At the top of the upper bracket defending champion Evan Santa defeated Evan Katz 3 & 2, using a pitch-in from off the green to birdie 16 and end his match. Maryland Amateur Champion Ben Warquist won over Blake Micholas 4 & 3.
In the bottom bracket USNA Golf Team player Matt Starobin gained a 2 up decision over Willian Rosenfield. Manor member and Maryland Amateur Championship runner-up Bart Mease beat Pieter DeGroot 1 up.
The semi-final matches get under way at 11:45 am. Sunny skies, mild temperatures, and gusty winds will continue to offer a challenge to the players.
The big question asked by the members is whether the final will be an all Manor contest, as it was at the Maryland Amateur at Columbia CC in June, when Ben Warnquist edged out Bart Mease to win the championship.
