From the Memorial to US Open Sectional Qualifying

by Roz Roberts III

After Friday's rough day on the greens, Michael Thompson righted the ship at the Memorial Tournament and shot a couple of steady, if not spectacular, rounds over the weekend to finish in a tie for 37th.

Monday brings one of the most exciting day in the golfing calendar as nearly half the field of this year's US Open at Pinehurst will be filled at sectional qualifying tournaments across the country.  Michael will be competing at the Columbus, Ohio venue where 120 golfers will compete for 16 spots.  Golfers will compete in two rounds at two different courses.  The Columbus qualifier will utilize the Brookside Golf & Country Club and Scioto Country Club.  Michael will be playing alongside Colt Knost and Cameron Percy.

The Columbus qualifier will be posting scores after the front and back nines of the first round and then live hole-by-hole scoring will be posted for the second round.
