Daly City, Calif.

Lake Merced GC/The Olympic Club (Ocean)

86 players for five spots

Final scores

It was a field day for amateurs at this site, so a medalist in that stead made the most sense. Arizona State’s Chun An Yu took the honors and was one of four amateurs in Daly City to move on to Shinnecock. Full story.

The Bear’s Club

48 players for three spots

Final scores

Ansley GC (Settindown Creek)

Springfield, Ohio

Springfield CC

65 players for five spots

Portland, Ore.

Portland GC

81 players for four spots

Final scores

Lucas Herbert, a 22-year-old Aussie, cruises to medalist at 12 under with one round that includes eight birdies and another that had two eagles. The enigmatic Sulman Raza, who was Oregon’s national title hero in 2016 then fell into a horrible slump and then got the Ducks back to an NCAA final the following year, continues to prove he’s clutch in big events as he qualifies for his first major. Full story.

Memphis, Tenn.

Ridgeway CC/Colonial CC (South) 

117 players for 11 spots

It was the Sam Burns Show, as the 21-year-old holed out for eagle in the morning on his way to an opening 9-under 62. He would be medalist by five shots. Steve Stricker comfortably qualifies again. Retief Goosen won the 2004 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills but will not be making a return trip there after his performance at sectionals. Full story.

Richmond, Texas

Shadow Hawk GC

52 players for three spots

Final scores

LSU teammates Philip Barbaree and Jacob Bergeron co-medaled at 11 under to advance to their first U.S. Opens. The final qualifier here will also play in his first Open.
