As other contenders stumbled around him, Cole Berman stayed steady and sure Thursday in the final round of the Patterson Cup while remaining keenly aware of a low number posted much earlier in the day. Berman birdied the 17th hole and hit a clutch shot out of the left rough that avoided some branches and led to a two-putt par on No. 18 to capture a 1-stroke victory in the Golf Association of Philadelphia's premier stroke-play event at Tavistock Country...

It's probably unwise to put too much pressure on Billy Stewart by calling him a budding sensation or a can't-miss star. But when a 17-year-old who stands 5-foot-5, weighs 130 pounds, and could pass for maybe 14 fires a 65 in qualifying for the U.S. Amateur, he is bound to raise a few eyebrows and a few expectations. "I was happy to be able to do it when it really meant something," said Stewart, a senior at Malvern Prep who plays No. 1 on the school's golf and tennis teams.

It might have been a rude awakening for Michael McDermott after he finished tied for third in the 36-hole, stroke-play qualifying to enter match play in the 113th Philadelphia Amateur. "The younger guys came up to me and said, 'Good playing, Mr. McDermott,' " the 38-year-old Merion and Pine Valley member said with a chuckle. "That's really depressing. " In a championship where players under 25 held 22 of the 32 match play spots, McDermott more than held his own. He concluded a strong week Saturday at Aronimink Golf Club by defeating 20-year-old college junior Alex Hicks, 5 and 4, in the 36-hole final to capture his second Amateur title.

The clouds had grown dark and menacing late Wednesday as Matt Teesdale reached the tee on his 36th hole at the Philadelphia Open owning a seemingly safe cushion with a 3-stroke lead. But Teesdale needed every stroke of that advantage after a pulled tee shot on the par-3 ninth at Applebrook Golf Club and wound up having to make a four-foot double-bogey putt for a 1-stroke victory in the 110th edition of the Golf Association of Philadelphia major. Teesdale, 23, of Maple Glen, shot morning and afternoon rounds of 3-under-par 68 for a total of 136, edging Merion amateur Michael McDermott.

Conrad Von Borsig had quite a few apt descriptions of what it has been like to play against Michael McDermott this week in the Philadelphia Amateur at Aronimink Golf Club. "He's a great player," Von Borsig said Friday after losing, 7 and 6, to McDermott in the semifinals of the 113th championship. "He just keeps hitting it straight, keeps hitting it on the green in good shape. . . . It's just like constantly trying to go uphill at him. " McDermott, who won the Amateur in 2008, will face Alexander Hicks of Wildwood in Saturday's 36-hole championship match.

The area's best players teed off Tuesday for stroke-play qualifying in the 113th Philadelphia Amateur, and the weather from the U.S. Open broke out. Delays totaling more than four hours because of rain and lightning hampered efforts to complete the 36-hole qualifier at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square and St. Davids Golf Club in Wayne, meaning that 133 contestants must finish the second round starting at 8 a.m. Wednesday. Golf Association of Philadelphia officials called play for the day because of darkness at 7:47 p.m. at St. Davids and 7:58 p.m. at Aronimink.

Michael McDermott of Merion Golf Club sank a 12-foot birdie putt on the final hole of a four-hole, aggregate-score playoff Thursday to win the Golf Association of Philadelphia's Middle-Amateur Championship for a record fourth time. McDermott, a five-time GAP player of the year, birdied the final hole of regulation play at Fieldstone Country Club in Greenville, Del., for a par 71 to tie Peter Barron III of Stone Harbor after 36 holes at 142. Barron birdied two of his last three holes to card a 69. In the playoff, Barron took a 2-stroke advantage on the first hole and still led by 1 with one hole to play, the 523-yard, par-5 18th.

Michael McDermott had little reason to believe that his 11th Crump Cup championship at Pine Valley would be the one to fulfill a dream. McDermott, 37, of Bryn Mawr, sat out competitive golf for most of the summer because of a digestive illness that resulted in a 10-day hospital stay and a six-week period when he did not touch a club. He said he went into last weekend's tournament "with almost no expectations. " But McDermott, a five-time Golf Association of Philadelphia player of the year, survived four close matches, two of which went to extra holes, and captured the 88th annual championship Sunday with a 2-and-1 victory over Kevin Marsh of Henderson, Nev. "This is really special," McDermott said Monday.
