The USGA created an alternate sectional qualifying site at Springfield Country Club to accommodate the high demand at the nearby Columbus sectional, which is crowded with Tour pros coming off a week at the Memorial.

Peterson, the NCAA medalist and champion last year at LSU, was left out in the cold last year by the USGA when he was surprisingly kept off the U.S. Walker Cup team. He had an amazing 24-hour stretch, which included a Sunday qualifying round in Memphis for this week's St. Jude Classic. He then turned around and traveled to the Columbus area and lit up in the morning session of qualifying at Springfield with a 64, the low round of the morning session at all sites.
