While waiting for the 8th and final match to conclude in the Gary Player Division, the 1st match has just finished in the Sam Snead Division. The veteran #8 seed 2011 David Toms takes the youngster #9 seed 2011 Jason Day to the cleaners with a 5 & 4 victory. Day bogeyed 4 holes on the front 9 that gave Toms a 3 UP advantage at the turn. And it didn’t get much better on the back 9 as Day bogeyed 2 holes while Toms just stayed out of trouble letting Day self-destruct. Toms carded 4 birdies on the “Day” while Jason posted 1 birdie to go along with his 6 bogeys.
In the Gary Player Division, #6 seed 2009 Zach Johnson just birdied the par 4 403 yard 16th hole to take a 1 UP lead with 2 holes to play against #11 seed 2011 Robert Karlsson.
