Samson puts halt to Rubis’ repeat hopes
Only half of the top seeds survived the first round of the Pine to Palm Senior’s match play, as defending champion Tim Rubis fell out of contention after losing to Rick Samson 2-up.
But the 2014 medalist Rob Harris will proceed for the potential sweep after he downed T.J. Solien 2 and 1 to advance to face Rick Johnson, who was a 4 and 3 winner over Craig Stein.
Samson will now play Larry Olin, who was a 3 and 1 winner over Scott Peters.
