U.S. Open Qualifying: Columbus Sectional Dominated By PGA Tour Pros

The Columbus District always has the strongest qualifying field for the U.S. Open, as many PGA Tour pros come over from Muirfield Village and the Memorial to play at Scioto and the Scarlet and Grey course at Ohio State. And the Tour pros dominated qualifying on Monday yet again, with 16 players moving on to Olympic in less than two weeks. Charlie Wi ran away from the field, firing 65-67 to come in at 9-under par, three shots better than the next closest qualifier. Blake Adams, who's been playing well all month and made plenty of noise at The Players, posted a 6-under on Monday and is on his way to the Bay area. Kevin Streelman, D.A. Points, Steve Marino, and Davis Love III are some of the other big names to qualify. A complete list of Columbus qualifiers from "Golf's longest day" below:
