Two-time U.S. Open champ Lee Janzen DQ’d from Open qualifier for wearing metal spikes

Lee-janzen-us-open-dq_640 Veteran PGA Tour player Lee Janzen, who won the 1993 and 1998 U.S. Opens, was disqualified from the sectional qualifier held at Woodmont Country Club in Maryland — for wearing metal spikes, according to a tweet from Jenzen himself:

Metal spikes are allowed at the actual U.S. Open, but if the host club for a sectional qualifier prohibits spikes, players are not allowed to wear them. Golf Channel's Jay Coffin tweeted out a photo of the USGA's letter to competitors that details the metal spike prohibition:

The top eight finishers at the Woodmont sectional will receive exemptions to play for the national championship next week.
