No playoff was required to determine the 15 golfers who advanced to match play, along with two-time defending champion Kelsey Chugg, the automatic No. 1 seed. As it turned out, Chugg (80-78) posted the 16th-best total.

Among the match play contestants are Utah Valley University coach Sue Nyhus and her daughter, Kimberly, who plays for the Wolverines. The round of 16 will be staged Friday morning, followed by the quarterfinals. The semifinals and 18-hole championship match are scheduled for Saturday.
