First Match Play for Leader

Jul 28, 2009

Seth Fair of Brownsburg will tee off July 29 in his first
match play competition as the number 1 seed in the IGA Match Play Championship.
Fair’s qualifying round of 4-under-par 32-36=68 earned him the top spot at The
Trophy Club in Lebanon. “I just hope to get off to a great start again and then
take it one shot at a time,” said Fair, who opened with consecutive birdies
Tuesday. Kyle Perry of Bloomington also carded 68 (33-35) and due to order of
play took the second seed heading into the match play portion.  


Perry will go up against Robert Gleixner of Greenwood and Fair
will compete against Josh Ruff of Winamac who won a playoff with a birdie for
the 32nd and final seeding. Ruff and John Santerre of Batesville
both shot 76 to force the playoff. The first round begins at 7:30 a.m. See
tee times here. Round of 16 matches will continue in the afternoon.


Defending champion and 2009 Senior Match Play winner Randy
Nichols is not competing in order to play in the US Senior Open at Crooked
Stick GC. Nichols qualified for the championship when he was a semi-finalist at
the 2008 US Senior Amateur.
