Meanwhile, Norm Duke and Wes Malott entered the day as the leaders and had a dramatic fall from first all the way down to seventh place and off the show. After going 5-1 in matches in Friday’s opening round, the duo reversed that and went 1-5 on Saturday.

Sam Cooley and Anthony Lavery-Spahr earned the No. 2 seed for the stepladder finals with an 8-4 match-play record and a total of 9,724. Canadians Patrick Girard and Zacharay Wilkins took the third seed with 9,671.

Defending champions Jason Belmonte and Bill O’Neill went 6-0 yesterday and sat in second place but managed just a 3-3 record in the final round. Boosted by a 300 game in the second to last game, Belmonte and O’Neill held on to take the fourth spot with 9,568.

In the final position round game, Sean Rash and Matt Ogle made the big move from seventh place up to fifth and onto the show thanks to a 279 final game. Ogle and Rash went 5-6-1 in match play but their 9,622 total was enough to make it in.
