A bogey early on the back nine of his second round at 36-hole qualifying in OR prevented the Bendigo youngster from equalling Portland Golf Club's course record 63, which Hogan shot in 1945. "The form has been coming around, so if I can have a nice week this week preparing and get myself in shape, I am really looking forward to Shinnecock - it is one of my favorite venues so I am really happy to be there".

Now, Scott can keep alive his major championship streak of over 17 years.

Lutterus appeared to be still in control through 9 holes of round two before dropping three shots over his closing nine to miss a potential playoff by one.

36 holes were played at eleven venues overnight, one in England (where Fox qualified) and ten in the United States of America, for what is essentially the last opportunity for more than 800 players to secure one of the 71 remaining places available.

The unique thing about his qualification is that Campbell qualified for the U.S. Open through the same sectional qualifying.

Former world No. 1 Adam Scott is set to maintain his 17-year streak of competing in major championships after the Australian secured a spot in next week's US Open through a qualifying event in Columbus, Ohio on Monday.

Subtropical Storm Alberto to make landfall on Florida Panhandle within hours
An average hurricane season produces 12 named storms, of which six become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes. The storm that was expected to make landfall later Monday had maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour (100 kph).

Ryan Fox is going to the US Open. The USGA held back six spots for those who crack the top 60 in the world next week.

The U.S. Open grants 76 exemptions for a total field of 156.

He had a chance to do that at the Memorial Tournament last weekend.

Herbert, from Bendigo, will skip playing for $260,000 on the Canadian tour this week and focus his enegeries on fighting for a share of the $15 million US Open prizepool next week in his major championship debut after winning his qualifying event in Portland, Oregon.

Then in sectional qualifying at Woodmont Country Club in Maryland, Wilkinson's disappointing year took a turn for the better when he shot 68 and 70 to finish second, two shots behind Colombia's Sebastian Munoz to snare one of four spots on offer there.

Stricker, who has 12 PGA Tour titles and has won twice on the PGA Tour Champions, will be making his 21st appearance in the U.S. Open and has four top-10s, his best a fifth in 1999. The medalist was Sam Burns, who didn't have much stress after opening with a 62.
