Mattiace still hoping to turn things around




Len Mattiace (above, blue shirt) came to TPC River Highlands on June 25 not knowing if he was in the field for the Travelers Championship.


The tour pro was staying at his home in Rhode Island and found out the night before that no alternates were on site. He knew if the call came Thursday morning, Mattiace had to be there ready to play.


“Evidently, nobody came in last night or this morning,” Mattiace said.



When D.A. Points withdrew on the morning of June 25, Mattiace was in the Travelers Championship. It’s the life of a former full-time member of the PGA Tour who no longer has much status to get into weekly events.

“I don’t know what (number alternate) I was. More than 10,” Mattiace said.



According to the PGA Tour, the former two-time winner was the 21st alternate. That normally translates into it’s not going to happen. But with more than half of the alternates instead going to the Web.Com Tour event, Mattiace got the chance to play in his third event of the year.
