U.S. Open sectional qualifying: A closer look – PGA TOUR


JUNE 3
Brookside G&CC/Scioto CC
Columbus, Ohio

Luke Guthrie’s incredible turnaround continued at U.S. Open sectional qualifying. Last month, Guthrie was outside the top 1,000 in the world ranking and had earned less than $1,500 on the Web.com Tour. He’s finished in the top-6 in three of his past four starts and now ranks 43rd on the Web.com Tour Regular Season Points List. (Click here for more on Guthrie’s day.)

He finished a shot ahead of two-time Presidents Cup participant Anirban Lahiri, who is 166th in the FedExCup standings.

Luke Donald, who is 181st in the FedExCup, qualified for his first major since 2017 and first U.S. Open since 2016.

Rory Sabbatini is the highest-ranked player in the FedExCup to qualify from this site. He is 54th in the standings.

Two amateurs qualified – Brandon Wu and Collin Morikawa. Wu was a member of the Stanford team that won this year’s NCAA Championship. Morikawa won the Pac-12 Championship and was the second-ranked player in college golf.
