U.S. Open qualifying: Top college standouts qualify for Pebble Beach

By

Most of the amateurs who qualified for the U.S. Open in sectional qualifying are top collegiate players who recently wrapped up their seasons.

Austin Eckroat of Oklahoma State was first. He qualified May 20 in Dallas, before the NCAA Div. I men’s golf championships, at which his Cowboys got knocked out in the semifinal round of match play.

On Monday June 3, Eckroat was joined by the following players, who also punched their tickets to Pebble Beach:

Brandon Wu, Stanford

Collin Morikawa, Cal

Chun An Yu, Arizona State

Spencer Tibbits, Oregon State

Noah Norton, Georgia Tech

Chandler Eaton, Duke

Cameron Young, Wake Forest

Jovan Rebula, Auburn

Wu was a member of the Stanford team that won the national title. Yu finished first in the Newport Beach sectional.

Viktor Hovland of Oklahoma State and Devon Bling of UCLA are also in the field by virtue of their 1-2 finish at last year’s U.S. Amateur.

The U.S. Open is June 13-16 at Pebble Beach Golf Links.
