Utah PGA Begins Match Play, Only One Match Goes 18 Holes

It took Todd Tanner all 18 holes to edge Tyler Swensen in the first round of the Utah Section PGA Match Play Championship at Hubbard Golf Course at Hill Air Force Base Monday. Tanner went to the 18th with a one-up lead and halved the hole for the victory.

Winners of matches that concluded on the 16th hole were Shawn Edwards, Joe Summerhays, Chris Stover, Zach Johnson, and Dave Loughton.
 
Mike Borich and Dustin Volk won on the 15th hole and Chris Moody won on the 14th hole. Pete Stone won by concession and the results don’t indicate when that took place.
 
The feature match of the second round pits defending champion Troy Watkins against Chris Moody.
