The first two rounds of Match Play were last Saturday and Sunday at Great Cove, and the 16th week of Men's League was on Thursday. Women's League was canceled Wednesday because of rain.

Forty-eight golfers played in the first round of Match Play on Saturday and half advanced to the second round on Sunday. The tournament is divided into three flights, - championship, first and second - and four players remain in each. Next Saturday and Sunday will mark the third and final round of Match Play.

For the third round of Match Play, the championship flight matches will be Steve Cortis vs. Matt Hale and Gary Bard vs. Marvin Kendall. First flight matches will be Larry Lecompte vs. Foster Early and Ryan Early vs. Kirk Powers. The two matches in the second flight will be Lucas Carbaugh vs. Dustin Doyle and Dave Keebaugh vs. Carl Paylor.
