Getting a chance to play in the U.S. Open was the goal as a local qualifier for the championship proper was held at par-72 Fort Washington Country Club in Fresno.
Sharing medalist honors were amateur Paul Smith of Turlock and Corey Pereira of Cameron Park, who both came in at 5-under 67.
Finishing third at 68 was Owen Taylor of San Juan Capistrano.
Michael Springer of Fresno and Anthony Verna of Orinda took the final two spots after carding identical 69’s.
First alternate is Tommy Masters of Clovis with a 69. The second alternate is Sacramento’s Cameron Champ, who shot 70.
