Golf: Matthews Struggles, Misses Cut
After Thursday’s promising round, Brandon Matthews shot a 1-over 73 during the second round of the Price Cutter Charity Championship on Friday and missed the cut of the Web.com Tour event.
The Duryea native and Pittston Area grad shot a two-day total of 6-under, one stroke shy of the cut.
He began Friday near the top of the leaderboard following a 7-under opening round that put him in ninth place at Highland Springs Country Club.
Matthews started the second round with a birdie and bogeyed the ninth hole. A second par-5 birdie on the 11th hole was wiped away by bogeys on his next two holes, plus a third on the 17th.
Matthews birdied three of four par-5s Friday, capped with a birdie on the 18th.
