LSU Golf's Smylie Kaufman qualifies for US Open


Thought some of you may be interested. He's from my hometown and a long time friend so I've been keeping up. He's at the Settindown course sectional in Atlanta. Plays 36 holes today. It's 31 amateurs playing for 2 spots.

He's currently 4 strokes ahead of the 2nd place spot and on his 24th hole.

Thanks for the info. For what it's worth, the qualifier has 31 players total, consisting of both pros and amateurs and not just amateurs.

Thanks.

I did see the Memphis sectional is nearly half PGA golfers, including David Toms who shot a -5 66 after round 1.

He finished at -2. Which, as of now is good for 2nd place and a qualifying spot. There is one guy from Auburn that has 2 to play and is currently -1.

David Toms is leading with 2 holes to go. Looks good for him to get to Pinehurst as well. Needs Top 13.

Loupe and Peterson are both in a T76th. Not looking good for them

Memphis qualifier question: top 13 advance to US Open? If so, Why so many spots vs other qualifiers?

One of the hardest qualifying a to do besides q school. Very great accomplishment. Is he playing as a pro?

The Usga really does a great job in the qualifying aspects. Pga should take note.

What is wrong with how the PGA handles qualifying? I don't have any knowledge of how they handle it so just curious. TIA
