Author: Kate Kellar
August 30th 2016 - Sutton, NH –  Bob Mielcarz (Concord CC), Bill Everett (Laconia Country Club), and Peter Beaulieu (Atkinson Country Club) all advance to the semifinal round of the Championship Flight in the Senior Match Play Championship at the Country Club of New Hampshire. 
 
Mielcarz had two come-from-behind wins as Robert Foehl (Lake Sunapee CC) and Bo Harris (Concord CC) each held the lead at one point in their matches against him, but Mielcarz reeled it back in and defeated Foehl 2 & 1 and beat Harris 3 & 2.  Everett didn’t have the opportunity to see the finishing three holes in either of his matches; in his Round of 16 match, he beat Bob Underhill, Jr (Legends Golf NH) 4 & 3 and finished off his match against Allen Pattee (Souhegan Woods GC) at 5 & 3.  Beaulieu also found himself in a good position, defeating Vinny DiMartino (Owl’s Nest GC) 4 & 2 and Jack Benson (Den Brae GC) 5 & 4.
 
Mielcarz will face Kevin Doherty (Manchester CC) and Everett will square off with Beaulieu in the Championship Flight semifinal matches Wednesday morning.
 
After taking the morning off due to his opponent withdrawing, Bill Krueger (Concord CC) pulled out a victory in his First Flight semifinal match.  He defeated Colby Blodget (Lake Sunapee CC) 3 & 1 after being down 4 holes in the first nine holes of the match.  Krueger will be up against Bob Grassetti (Nashua CC) in the First Flight final match, who won his quarterfinal and semifinal matches 3 & 2. 
 
In its first year, the Senior Match Play Championship mirrors the format of the NHGA Junior Championship.  Competitors ages 55 and over play 18 holes of stroke play qualifying to determine their seed and flight for the match play rounds beginning Tuesday.  The top 16 players are placed into the Championship Flight with the next 8 players being placed into the First Flight.  The final matches will be decided on Wednesday, August 31st.
