Email News Alerts

It was a day of reckoning for the Pine to Palm's top seeds in the first round of action Thursday, as three of the top four players fell by the wayside.


Not only did defending champion Todd Hillier end his quest for a repeat championship, No. 2 seed and medalist Erik Von Rooyen also lost in dramatic fashion.

The upsets were not done there, though, as No. 4 seed and first-day medalist Beau Hanson of Frazee couldn't make it out of the first round.
