U.S. Open local qualifying results: An Orange County Tiger connection

Mid-Hudson golfers were shut out of U.S. Open local qualifying at two sites Monday.

But, one golfer is still alive in a playoff at Willow Ridge, which will resume Tuesday morning. And, that golfer just happened to play Tiger Woods in his last match as an amateur.

Steve Scott, a Highland Mills resident, was defeated by Tiger in 38 holes in the 1996 U.S. Amateur final. It was Tiger’s third straight Amateur title.

Scott, the head golf professional at Paramount Country Club in New City, is in a playoff for the final spot with Brian Hughes of Raleigh, N.C. and Mike Caporale of Manhasset.
