Sectional Qualifiers for the 2012 U.S. Open took place from sea to shining sea on Monday, and a number of familiar names made it through the grueling 36-hole event to earn spots in the Open, to be played at The Olympic Club in San Francisco.
Davis Love III is among the biggest names to have "made the cut" and earned a place in the Open field, shooting 2-under over his two rounds at the Ohio State Scarlet Course and Scioto Country Club in Columbus, Ohio. Dennis Miller got the day's most dramatic putt at that same Scarlet Course, rolling in a long putt on the final hole of his second round to earn a spot by a stroke.
Longtime pro Bob Estes also secured a spot, taking medalist honors at a Sectional Qualifier in Texas. And there may be more drama to come: Casey Martin was making a run at medalist honors in Oregon as of the publication of this post, and the Sectional Qualifier in Germantown, Tenn. was postponed until Tuesday.
