Temple teammates Brandon Matthews and Matthew Teesdale are among Philadelphia-area players who will compete in the 114th U.S. Amateur Championship, beginning Monday at the Atlanta Athletic Club.
Others who are part of the 312-player field include Chris Crawford of Bensalem; former Haverford resident John Sawin, now living in San Francisco; and J.D. Dornes and David Denlinger, both of Lancaster.
The championship will begin with 36-hole stroke play qualifying Monday and Tuesday. The field will then be cut to the low 64 for Wednesday's opening round of match play over the Atlanta Athletic Club's Highlands course, site of the 2000 and the 2011 PGA Championships.
