Beem Wins U.S. Open Sectional in Richmond

A sectional qualifier for the U.S. Open was played in Richmond on Monday, one of 14 being played that day. Only two spots in the U.S. Open field were awarded from this location, but a PGA Tour pro managed to grab one of those spots. The two qualifiers are:

Rich Beem, Austin, 67-70--137
Charlie Beljan, Mesa, Ariz., 69-70--139

The alternates are:

Robert Gwin, Houston, 72-69--141
Steve Elkington, Australia, 70-71--141

And among those playing this qualifier who failed to make it were Cory Whitsett, Tom Byrum, B.J. Staten, J.L. Lewis and Ryan Baca.
