Teeing off of hole No. 10, the team made up of cousins, Cline and Meitner, birdied the first hole which help set the tone for the rest of the day.

“You always know in one of these events you have to go pretty low so it gives you a bit of comfort that you can do it,” said Meitner.

“Cole told me a few minutes ago it’s his life-long goal to play in a USGA event and this is our first one together,” said Cline. “It means the world to both of us.”

Following a front-nine score of two-under par, 32, the duo of Cline and Meitner turned it on down the stretch, making birdie on three of the final five holes to finish five-under par on their back nine and seven-under overall.

“Cole made birdie on half of the holes I made birdie on today so we didn’t do a great job of ham and egging it, but he freed me up and made a couple of pars down the stretch to give me a couple of free runs at birdie putts. They just started dropping,” said Cline.

“There were a couple of bombs that Tyler made there. I think about 80 or 90 feet of putts on those three holes,” said Meitner “I had birdie putts on all of them, but he just wanted to show me up. Typical family thing.”

Also starting on the 10th tee, the duo of Orlando and Latowski came out of the gate strong with two consecutive birdies to kickstart the round. Overall on the day, Orlando and Latowski carded six birdies and an eagle, including a finishing stretch which saw the team shoot five-under par from holes three through seven.

“After our front nine we knew we needed to get it going a little bit so for it to come together like that was really special. It was a great day” said Latowski who flew in from California to play in the qualifier.

“Andy told me before we teed it up that I needed to make eight birdies today since he was traveling this far,” said Orlando. “We came up a little shy but that run was pretty great.”

Both members of Philadelphia Cricket Club, the championship will be a homecoming event for Orlando and Latowski.

“That’s been the goal ever since Andy and I signed up for this event. It’s an absolute dream come true to play the U.S. Four-Ball at Philly Cricket Club,” said Orlando. “It’s going to be a lot of fun to play in front of a home crowd. We can’t wait to tee it up.”

“I moved out to California a few years back but have still stayed in touch. Gregor called and wanted to play and I thought it would be awesome,” said Latowski. “It’s definitely a dream come true to play this event at Philly Cricket Club.”

Joseph Dolezal and Matthew Difiore earned the first alternate position, carding a round of six-under par, 65 while the team of Andrew Osofsky and Timothy Hager claimed the second alternate spot on the first hole of a hole-by-hole playoff.
