U.S. Open Golf 2012 Qualifying Results: Casey Martin Makes The Cut

The first sectional qualifiers for the 2012 U.S. Open took place on Monday. One of those sectionals was a 37-golfer event at Emerald Valley Golf Club in Cresswell, Ore. At the end of the day, Casey Martin had earned the right to attend his first U.S. Open since 1998.

Bob Harig at ESPN.com reports that Martin shot back-to-back rounds of 69 at the qualifier to snag one of two spots available for the U.S. Open. Daniel Miernicki and Nick Sherwood tied, so they will have a playoff on Tuesday to determine the other sectional winner.

Martin, who was born with a birth defect in his leg that makes it painful for him to walk, will be able to use a golf cart in the U.S. Open. Martin currently serves as the golf coach for the Oregon Ducks and is looking forward to competing in the second major of his career.
