Luke Donald Survives Sectional Playoff to Qualify for U.S. Open
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Luke Donald went two extra holes to join four other players earning a spot in the U.S. Open after a playoff Tuesday morning.
Donald, a former world No. 1 who has been eligible for every U.S. Open since 2005, made two pars in the six-man playoff in the Ohio qualifier that featured the strongest field. The others advancing were Patrick Rodgers, Jason Allred, Richard Schembechler II and Texas Longhorns sophomore Scottie Scheffler.
Daniel Summerhays was eliminated when he missed a 5-foot putt on the second playoff hole.
One other qualifier remains to be completed Tuesday. The Florida section was halted because of thunderstorms
Scheffler had to get up-and-down for par on the final hole Monday evening to secure his spot in the six-man playoff.
