The field of local players heading for U.S. Open sectional qualifying expanded by four on Monday with David Young, Grant Sturgeon, Mike Miller and Greg Bisconti all moving on.
Jimmy Hazen, a Long Island native competing on the PGA TOUR Latinoamerica captured medalist honors with a 2-under 69 in high winds.
Young, the head pro at Sleepy Hollow who captured the MasterCard Met PGA Senior Match Play last week, shot a 1-under 70. He’ll be joining his son, Cameron, who got through a local qualifier last week at Old Westbury. Sturgeon, a Winged Foot assistant, shot an even-par 71 along with Mike Miller, a mini-tour player out of Brewster and former MGA player of the year. Bisconti, the head pro at St. Andrew’s, shot a 1-over 72 and survived a playoff.
Darkness suspended the playoff with Carl Alexander, the director of golf at Purchase, and James Nicholas, a Scarsdale resident who plays at Yale, competing for the final spot. They will resume at 8 a.m. on Tuesday.
Sectional qualifying is June 6.
