Final matches set at Golfweek Senior Match Play

Dormie Club, site of the new Golfweek Senior National Match Play.

The Golfweek Senior National Match Play Championship has been whittled down to four players. Steve Hudson and Pat Thompson will meet in the senior-division final on Aug. 12 at the Dormie Club in West End, N.C., and Walt Martin will meet Don Marsh in the super-senior final.

Hudson, of Birmingham, Ala., played for the University of Alabama, and has won four Alabama Golf Association titles in the past five years. He won the Alabama Senior Amateur in 2011 and ’14 and the Alabama Mid-Amateur in 2010 and ’12. Hudson also won the Senior Masters in April.

Hudson will have to overcome Thompson, who is ranked No. 26 in Golfweek’s Senior Rankings. Thompson, of Asheville, N.C., has been a standout player in North Carolina for the past 20 years. He missed earning exempt status on the Champions Tour by a single stroke in 2009, and won the North & South Senior Amateur in 2013.

In the Super Senior Division, Don Marsh, of Alpharetta, Ga., will have an opportunity to make the most of a limited competition schedule. Despite playing few tournaments, Marsh won the Senior Hall of Fame and the Georgia Senior Invitational in 2014.

Marsh will play Martin, of Oakton, Va., a retired Naval officer who is ranked No. 7 by Golfweek.
