Simson advances at Senior Amateur Championship

MANAKIN-SABOT, Va. (AP) — Defending champion Paul Simson was among 32 players to advance through Monday's first round of match play at the USGA Senior Amateur Championship.

Simson, from Raleigh, N.C., who took stroke-play medalist honors on Sunday, never trailed en route to a 5-and-4 victory over Armen Dirtadian from Tucson, Ariz.

Chip Lutz, from Reading, Pa., needed 20 holes to win his match against playoff-survivor Ian Harris, from Bloomfield Hills, Mich.

Lutz is attempting to join Simson as winner of the three major senior championships in the same season.
