Ray Guthrie Wins 2000 North Carolina Match-Play Championship

Forest City, NC - 17 September 2000 - Ray Guthrie advanced to the finals of the North Carolina Match Play championship after defeating Larry Simpson to get there and waited for his loser's bracket finalist, defending 1999 Match-Play champion, Andy Coradini.

After Coradini won the first match between the two by a 2 & 1 count, another 36 holes left them tied. Coradini had honors in sudden-death and was on the second hole when he took a double bogey four while Guthrie left his first shot close enough to the hole to win his first Match Play Championship. Guthrie received a $350 first place winning.

Special thanks are given out to the Connors from the Forest City course for hosting the 2000 North Carolina Teams and Match Play Championship.

North Carolina will play its 2000 NCPPA State Championship this coming weekend in Greensboro, NC with Bart Bason out to defend his 1999 North PPA State Championship.
