Two Toledo-area golf professionals will compete today in the U.S. Open sectional qualifying tournament at Springfield (Ohio) Country Club.
Mike Stone from Waterville will tee off at 7:20 a.m. for his first 18 holes in the one-day, 36-hole qualifier. Jaysen Hansen of Ottawa Hills has a 7:40 tee time.
There are 63 players in the Springfield sectional vying for three spots in the U.S. Open at Pinehurst (N.C.) No. 2 on June 12-15.
Like Stone and Hansen, amateur Jose Narro advanced out of a local qualifier at Belmont Country Club on May 13.
Narro, a native of Mexico who just completed his freshman year at Bowling Green State University, will be in sectional play today at Lakeside CC in Houston, where a field of 56 golfers competes for three Open berths at Pinehurst.
