Pittston Area graduate Brandon Matthews shot 4-under-par at a qualifier at Overbrook Golf Club and Radnor Valley Country Club, earned medalist honors and punched his ticket to the U.S. Amateur Championship on Monday.

After winning the Golf Association of Philadelphia’s 109th Open Championship five days earlier, Matthews stormed out of the gates, recording a 3-under-par in the first round at Overbrook Golf Club to hold the 18-hole lead.

Matthews continued to roll in the second round, logging a 1-under-par score to defeat runner-up Sean Fahey by three strokes.

Matthews will play in U.S. Amateur Championship at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass. Aug. 12-18.

Earlier this year, Matthews, a sophomore at Temple University, barely missed qualifying for the U.S. Open.
