I was wondering how many of us MGS members will be trying to qualify for the US Open this summer.  Entries opened last week. 

 

I will be attempting to qualify here in Springfield, IL at the Illini Country Club May 9th.

I think I'll pass this year. We're having a two day Shirts & Skirts at the club. It pays $200 with free sausage wraps and a keg at the turn. If it wasn't for that...yeah, I'd be in.

I would love to but unless my game get a serious kick in the pants then I'm out. I would bet KC and maybe Jmike might give it a run.

Good luck to those trying. I tried the Senior Open qualifying when I turned 50 once just for yucks. Walking, in Florida on a hilly course in June. It was five hours of torture to learn what I suspected, I didn't have the game and still don't.

 

I suspect that some here are a lot closer though.

Taylor Made Sim2  10.5 (Opened 1 click) Ventus Blue 5  R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

Edison Wedges 54 and 59 KBS Tour Graphite 80's

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Would like to say that I would this year, but based on my schedule it is doubtful.  Not to mention low 60's are what got through at Bethpage Red last year and those scores are not in my wheelhouse these days.

Good luck. I'm not. Too much loft. (Lack of f-ing talent)

Now that I'm retired, I'd consider trying to qualify but now there are probably plenty of fairways that I can no longer reach off the tee!

Well yeah.  My lowest index ever was 3.1.  Trending 4.9 now.  I think you have to be a 2 or better to try and qualify.  And, IMO the distance from 3.1 to 2 is a lot greater than 5 to 4.  So I was never even close.

1.4 is the number I believe. Although nobody who isn't waaay positive handi would be screwed in my mind.

I would agree.  Results from last year where I would have played.

Farmingdale, N.Y.
Bethpage State Park (Red Course)
 
Player Score Kevin Ausserlechner - WEST HARRISON, N.Y. 62 Matthew Dobyns - LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y. 63 Matthew Sita - GLEN COVE, N.Y. 63 Mark Brown - OYSTER BAY, N.Y. 64 Michael Furci - SAYVILLE, N.Y. 65 John Igoe - REPUBLIC OF IRELAND 65 Tyler Jaramillo - NEW YORK, N.Y. 66 Alt - (a)-Johnny Schob - HUNTINGTON, N.Y. 66 Alt - (a)-Sean Cavanaugh - ENCINO, Calif. 66

 

Dobyns won the PGA Professionals championship two of the last three years and the guy that won it is a pro out of CC of Darien.   Furci is like a +4 or so.  Most of these guys are fixtures in the MET section and a heck of a lot better player than I am.

Great example! I hover around scratch and I've never shot ten under. Never. Let alone on a pressure filled qualifying round for the open. You have to be pretty damned good or a pro at some point to get through.

My low round at Bethpage Red from the tips was 67 and that was in college when I was a much lower index. Not sure I want to pay a few hundred bucks to shoot 70 and go home for the day not even sniffing the sectionals.

Dobyns is playing in Houston this week on the Tour. -3 midway through his second round. No way I have that kind of game, even on my best day.
