Five players are a big step closer to playing in this year’s U.S. Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links after advancing through Thursday’s 18-hole local qualifier at par-71 Granite Bay Golf Club.
Donnie Baucom, Austin Fox and Daulet Tuleubayev all shared medalist honors with matching scores of 69. Fox and Tuleubayev, who now play at University of Pacific and Stanford, respectively, are both former standouts on the Junior Tour of Northern California.
The other two automatic spots went to pros Brad Marek and Anthony Manguray at 70.
