In his opening match, Waldorf required only 14 holes to dispatch Roger Brown, of Arkansas City, Kan., 5-and-4. Waldorf was extended to 19 holes in the second round before defeating Lamar Haynes of Dallas, Tex.

Three other Valley golfers did not make the cut at 147. Bob Malpasuto of Northridge shot 156, Mark Phillips of Studio City had a 161 and Craig Steinberg of North Hollywood came within two strokes of qualifying for match play with a 149.
