Former Bruin standout Adam Wynia earned medalist honors at a U.S. Open Local Qualifying Tournament May 22, putting him one step away from a spot in the 2006 U.S. Open Championship.
Wynia’s two-under-par 69 on the Par 71 Minnehaha Country Club layout put him two shots clear of the field. The former team captain and First Team All-Atlantic Sun selection now moves on to one of fourteen Sectional Qualifying Tournaments.
Wynia is entered in the sectional at Saint Charles Country Club in Saint Charles, Ill., on Monday June 5. The Sectional Qualifiers – which boast PGA Tour and European Tour players – are 36 holes of medal play with roughly 80 players from the various sites earning entry into the U.S. Open field.
This year’s U.S. Open Championship is to be played at historic Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y., June 15-18.
