Tuesday May 10th

Michael Thompson shot a four under par over 36 holes to advance through the US Open Local Qualifier in Durham. North Carolina.  Michael now advances to the Sectional Qualifier stage which will be held on June 6.

The Local Qualifier in Durham featured 120 golfers competing for nine spots (and two alternate spots) in the US Open Sectional Qualifying rounds.  Michael's four under par was good enough to tie for 3rd and advance.

Advancing through the Local Qualifier allows Micheal to compete in one of the 13 US Open Sectional Qualifiers.  The Sectional Qualifiers are 36 hole hole events and will be conducted at two international sites (May 23 in Japan and May 30 in England) and 11 sites spread across the United States on June 6th.  The Sectional Qualifiers feature roughly 750 golfers competing for somewhere around 75 spots.

Sectional Qualifiers advance into the 11th US Open Championship at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland the week of June 16th.
