Baldwin Advances 

In the semi-final match, Baldwin took on 15th-seeded Ben Sapovits. 

After Baldwin got off to an early two-up lead, the match was tied through ten holes. 

However, from there, Baldwin won 11, 12 and 13, halved 14 and then closed the match out on 15 to advance to the final. 

Dessel Holds Off Dumas 

On the other side of the bracket, Dessel took down top-seeded Spencer Dumas o advance to the final. 

In that match, Dessel was two up after the first two holes, before Dumas rallied to tie the match on six and again on eight. 

However, Dessel won the ninth hole to take one up lead into the closing stretch. 

Dessel then won 10, 11, and 14 to go four-up and appear to close the match out. 

But, Dumas would make one more rally. 

Dumas won 15, 16, and 17 to get the match back to just one-down. But, needing a win on 18, Dessel was able to halve it to win the match.
