Stricker, Neibrugge Qualify For Open

Antigo, WI, United States /

(Memphis, TN)  —  Wisconsin golfer Steve Stricker used the irritation he felt at being left out of the original field for the U-S Open as motivation, shooting rounds of 67 and 65 Monday to earn his spot.  Stricker was red hot at the sectional qualifying in Memphis, Tennessee.  He finished at 10-under par 132.  Twenty-three-year-old Jordan Niebrugge of Mequon also qualified at an event in Tacoma, Washington.  He and Stricker will be the only players in the 117th U-S Open field with ties to Wisconsin.
