Steve Scott won medalist honors Tuesday at the Old Westbury local qualifier for the U.S. Open.

Steve Scott rolled in five birdies on the back nine Tuesday during local qualifying for the U.S. Open at Old Westbury Golf and Country Club, shooting a 2-under 70 to claim medalist honors. The head professional at Paramount Country Club will take momentum and local knowledge into the upcoming sectional qualifier at Canoe Brook, where the New City resident worked as an assistant.

It’s the fourth year in a row he’s advanced to golf’s longest day.

Cameron Young shot a 3-over 75, then won a 5-for-1 playoff when he eagled the first extra hole to get the last of six qualifying spots. The Scarborough resident recently finished his freshman year at Wake Forest and is heading back to compete in the NCAA tournament.
