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, North Carolina, who took stroke-play medallist honours on Sunday, never trailed en route to a 5-and-4 victory over Armen Dirtadian from Tucson, Ariz.

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

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