He fired rounds of 3-under-par 68 at both Llanerch Country Club and Rolling Green Golf and Country Club to post a record-tying 6-under par and finish as medalist for the championship. He will be seeded first for the start of match play Wednesday at Llanerch.

Thirty-six now, he's not yet over the hill. But he's been at its summit for a while, and he can see there's not far to travel.
