Strongsville’s Jake Scott cruised to a two shot victory at the U.S. Open Local Qualifying Tournament on the North Course at Westfield Country Club. Scott made just one bogey against five birdies in shooting a 4-under par 66.

Hartville’s Jake McBride, the most recent Ohio Open champion on this very same golf course, finished in a tie for second place with Toledo amateur Ben Silverman. Both players finished with a score of 68 to earn the next two available qualifying spots.

Then after the top-three players, the rest of the qualifiers and alternates on the North Course were determined by a playoff, as five players finished T4 at 1-under par 69.

17-year-old Connor Malicki of Avon secured one of the playoffs spots, as did Memphis amateur David Howser. Both players made pars on the third playoff hole to secure a ticket to Sectionals.

The Northern Ohio Golf Association conducted two separate U.S. Open Local Qualifiers at one site today, the first time ever for the USGA. Both the North Course and the South Course at Westfield Country Club each had 5 qualifying spots and two alternate spots available.
