With darkness approaching, the pair went to a chipoff, where Rutherford nailed the win by chipping his ball from 30 feet within four feet of the cup. Capps’ chip was 15 feet away from the cup.

Rich Phillips shot a 42 for WC, Dylan Bradley carded a 43, Cade Oldenburg shot a 46 and Nathan West shot a 52.
