Feldman, Stubblefield stumble into semifinal

Top seeds Andrew Feldman and Larry Stubblefield needed an extra hole but advanced to the semifinals of the Aloha Section PGA 4-Ball Match Play Championship at Oahu Country Club yesterday.

Feldman and Stubblefield, who are the defending champions, beat Kevin Ralbovsky and Ken Springer 1 up in 19 holes to join 13th-seeded David Kowalcyzk and Marc Smith, No. 2 Shane Abe and Scotty Kaneko and No. 6 Beau Yokomoto and Wade Nishimoto in the semifinals.

John Inzer and Bill Schwallie pulled off the upset of the day, beating Ron and Joey Castillo 2 and 1 in the first round before falling to Yokomoto and Nishimoto.

The semifinals begin this morning at 7 with the finals to follow at 11:30 a.m.

Lynch, Hayashi on to Ohio: John Lynch of Kaneohe and Kevin Hayashi of Hilo earned spots in the PGA Club Pro championship at Nashport, Ohio, in June with qualifying scores at the Western PGA Club Professional Championship at Olympia, Wash., Monday.

Lynch finished in a tie for fifth with a 138 after two rounds while Hayashi managed to come in 15th with a 140. John Henderson of Dallas won the rain-shortened event with a 135.
