Matthew Vital, a 15-year-old sophomore who attends Bethlehem Liberty High School, has broken a record at Reading Country Club after firing an 8-under-par 62 in a PGA Junior Tour Event. The young boy said he felt great when he performed wonderfully at Reading Country Club for the Philadelphia Section at the PGA Junior Tour Event.
The 15-year-old sophomore had broken Sam Snead’s record by one stroke. Vital fired a 31 on every side. According to the director of golf in the club, Derric Sandritter, the tees tipped out way back the same they were in the Reading Open in 1949, where Sam Snead carded 63.

I found it pretty crazy. It’s hard to believe because that course didn’t play easy. So it really means a lot that I can break Sam Snead’s record.Matthew Vital
According to Sandritter, the 1923 tree-lined course is old-fashioned considering the undulating greens, small greens, and tight fairways. Gus Vital said that he noticed his son was focused and composed during the round.
Despite how calm Mathew was, his father said it appeared as though it took forever to finish because he was more concerned about his son’s special round.
When the round ended, Gus received news that Mathew had broken a record Snead made before his death. Snead played for the World Golf Hall of Fame.
