ASG Blast From The Past Match Play

It’s great that the “Good Doctor” #3 seed Cary Middlecoff gave up Dentistry to play Golf!  So good that he just beat #7 seed Dave Stockton 2 & 1 to advance to the “Elite 8” out of the Harry Vardon Bracket!  “Yeah, I got my hands, or should I say teeth full going up against Hogan next, but, I plan to drill him too,” said Middlecoff when asked about his career change after the match.

Only 4 holes were in play out the 17 as it was a “HALVE FEST!”  Middlecoff had a 2 UP advantage thru 6 holes but Stockton birdied the par 4 447 yard 7th to cut Middlecoff’s lead to 1 UP.  It stayed that way until the 12th hole when Middlecoff hit an 8 footer for birdie to regain his 2 UP advantage!  Holes 13 through 17 were all HALVED giving “The Good Doctor” his 2 & 1 Win and a ticket to the “Elite 8!”

I think I just broke my record for “single day” posts on the ASG Blog!  How many was it?  4 or 5 or maybe 6 … not sure … but I’ve been typing a lot 4 sure!
