On six of those occasions, he’s pulled off the local-sectional qualifying double, making his achievement even more remarkable.

He’ll get another chance to show what he can do on the biggest golf stage next week in Philadelphia, returning to the city where he went to college (Temple, Class of 1987) and the course where he competed in the 1989 US Amateur. Sisk nearly advanced to match play, losing in a playoff for the right to be among the final 64.
