Columbus - Adam Scott went through US Open qualifying for
the first time in his career and made it with one stroke to spare.
Scott two-putted from about 30 feet for par on his final
hole at The Lakes Golf and Country Club for an even-par 72 to be among 14
players who made it through the 36-hole qualifier.
One shot less and Scott would have been in a 10-man playoff
for the final spot. Instead, he will be competing in his 68th consecutive major
dating to the 2001 US. Open. He was scheduled for US Open qualifying and chose
not to play.
The Columbus sectional was among 11 sectional qualifiers
Monday, including one in England, offering 71 spots to 869 players.
The US Open is June 14-17 at Shinnecock Hills.
