BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Matthew Mattare topped the 64 match-player qualifiers in the U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship, shooting a 2-under 69 on Sunday to finish stroke play at 5-under 136.
The 27-year-old Mattare, from Jersey City, N.J., one-putted his last seven greens on the Country Club of Birmingham's West Course, one of two courses used in stroke play.
Match play will be contested on the West Course in the event limited to players 25 and older.
Kenny Cook of Noblesville, Ind., was second after a 5-under 65 on the East Course, the best score in two rounds of qualifying.
