BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) Scott Harvey won the U.S. Mid-Amateur on Thursday to earn a spot in the Masters, beating Brad Nurski 6 and 5 in the 36-hole final.

The 36-year-old Harvey, a real estate property manager from Greensboro, North Carolina, had a 4-up lead after the morning round on Saucon Valley's Old Course.

Nurski, a 35-year-old railroad conductor and switchman from St. Joseph, Missouri, was trying to become the first left-hander to win the event.

The match marked only the second time that co-medalists have met in the final in the 34-year history of the event for players 25 and older.
