Rhett Butler of Montgomery Village, comedalist in the 14-15 class with Webb Heintzelman of Washingtonian, lost his first-found match to Dick Parkinson of Argyle, 3 and 2, Heintzelman had no problem beating Bob Phillips of Springfield, 6 and 5. The younger group played only one round yesterday.
Montefusco won his morning match against Andy Harris of Hampson, Va., 2 and 1, and defeated Jeff Walter of Springfield, 4 and 3, in the afternoon. Gates eliminated Furman Buddin of Malvern, Pa., 2 and 1, in the morning, but had a tougher time beating Dennis McCarthy of Greencastle on the 20th hole in his second match.

In his afternoon match with Reardon, the match was even going to the 18th and both were on in two. But Whalley three-putted for a bogey and lost the match.
