The final four is set at the Atomic City Invitational in the men's tournament, while the women and seniors will determine the 2010 champion Saturday.

The women's and senior men's brackets will conclude Saturday. Ev Griggs and Anna Swertfeger have both gone 2-0 in their first two match play rounds and will square off in the women's final.

The ACI is scheduled to tee off at 8 a.m.

For the senior men, Bruce Norman knocked off 2005 champion Jim Hoffer 7 and 6 Friday. A win Saturday over Brian Colby would give Norman the title.

In the men's championship bracket Friday, Warren Finch scored his second straight upset of the tournament, outlasting Jason Norman 1-up. Finch will face Parker Ashton, a newcomer to the ACI, who topped Kevin Brake 4 and 3 in their quarterfinal round.

Other winners included Curt Norman, who toppled twice-defending champion Lee Sanchez in their quarterfinal 5 and 3, and Brett Hollander, who topped Phil Hoffer 3 and 2 in the other quarterfinal.

Norman, in his match, sank an 18-foot putt on the 12th green to clinch the victory and knock Sanchez out of the tournament.
