Century and Old Oaks to Host US Open Sectional Qualifier

For the third time in six years, Old Oaks and Century CC, both in Purchase, will host the US Open Sectional Qualifier. Sectional qualifying, conducted over 36 holes, will be held on June 2 at ten sites in the U.S. For the 10th consecutive year, Japan and England will host international qualifying, which is scheduled for May 26. Winners will advance to the US Open to be held at Pinehurst #2 on June 12-15.

Unless you otherwise qualify, you'll need to win a Local Qualifier before you can advance to the Sectionals. Those will be held locally at Whippoorwill CC in Armonk and Paramount CC in New City.

Ken Venturi (1964) and Orville Moody (1969) are the only players to win the U.S. Open after qualifying through both local and sectional play. Jerry Pate (1976), Steve Jones (1996), Michael Campbell (2005) and Lucas Glover (2009) have won as sectional qualifiers.

Online registration for the US Open began March 5 and continues through April 23. If you haven't signed up yet, go to https://champs.usga.org/index.html and see if you qualify.
