Matthews barely makes Day 3

Brandon Matthews made it to Day 3 at his latest Web.com Tour outing, but today might be short-lived.

A 1-over round put Matthews a shot below the projected cut before darkness suspended action Friday at the LECOM Suncoast Classic in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Though the Pittston Area graduate is 4-under, he’s tied for 66th place and on the outside looking in as the second round concludes today.

Matthews entered Friday in 16th place and looked to have another solid day in store. Starting on the back nine with consecutive birdies, he added eagles on the par-5 14th and 16th holes to reach as low as six strokes below par through 10 holes.

Bogeys on Holes 2, 3 and 5 chipped away at that promising start. Double bogeys on No. 6 and 8 put him above par for the day and in danger of missing his second cut this year.
