quarterfinal match 5&4 over Brody Watkins. Nolen birdied Nos. 10 and 14 to
clinch a spot in the semifinals.
Top-seeded Nathan Weant needed 20 holes, but closed out Drew McGee

shot, but was able to get up and down for birdie on the 18th hole,

14 to go 4 up with four holes to play. Thomas made birdie on No. 15 and par on
