RESULTS: 2021 U.S. Open Local Qualifying – Cleveland

USGA NOGATwo current and two former Golden Flashes golfers led the way in the 2021 U.S. Open Local Qualifier for the Greater Cleveland area, played Tuesday at Beechmont Country Club.

Current Kent State junior Jared Wilson of Columbiana won medalist honors going away, posting seven birdies against a single bogey in earning a three-shot victory on a damp day.

Another current KSU sophomore, Cade Breitenstine of Akron (above), tied with 2018 Kent grad and playing professional Ian Holt of Stow (below) for second place at 3-under par 68. Breitenstine had his round to 5-under par with two holes to play, but finished with a pair of bogeys. Holt also made two bogeys against five birdies but finished with a great par save at the last.

Ohio State Buckeyes golfer Jonerik Alford from Johns Creek, GA earned the fifth qualifying spot shooting 1-under par 70.

Three players finished at even-par 71 for the final two qualifying spots of the seven total awarded.

Bowling Green State University Men’s Golf Coach John Powers made four birdies against four bogeys and finished with a solid up-and-down at the last.

17-year-old Ashland High School junior Tyler Sabo, a two-time All-Ohio golfer, posted even par in a round highlighted by an eagle-3 at the par-5 sixth hole.

Canton pro Ryan Troyer, also a former Kent State player, shot 71 in the morning wave but decided not to return to Beechmont for the 3-for-2 playoff. Troyer had his round to 4-under par through 12 holes, but gave back those birdies in his closing six holes. By skipping the playoff, he was relegated to the first alternate spot.

Ben Jones of Strongsville, a senior at the University of Ashland, earned the second alternate spot in a 4-for-1 playoff, with two not appearing for that playoff.
