769 golfers played for 56 spots in the U.S. Open field next week. One golfer with Wisconsin ties finished high enough to claim a spot in the U.S. Open field in Pinehurst, North Carolina.
Menomonee Falls native Mark Wilson tied for fourth in a sectional qualifier in Columbus, Ohio. The field of 120 golfers played for 16 spots in the U.S. Open Field.
Wilson shot back-to-back 69’s and will join Madison’s Steve Stricker, who was exempt from qualifying.
Wilson has played in three U.S. Open’s, the last in 2012. But he has just one top-25 finish this year. He’s missed the cut in nine of his last 12 starts and is coming off a tie for 72nd at the Memorial Tournament last weekend.
