MILLS IS MEDALIST, FOUR OTHERS ADVANCE TO U.S. OPEN FINAL QUALIFYING

Omaha Country Club proved to be a championship test on Wednesday, as only two players broke par, with five advancing past Local Qualifying for the 2022 U.S. Open. Corbin Mills of Greenville, South Carolina torched the field, firing a 67 (-4) for the low round of the day by three strokes. Only one other player was able to break par, and that was former Kansas Jayhawk Connor Peck of Ankeny, Iowa. Playing alongside Peck was another qualifier, Omaha's Carson Schaake who posted 71 (E). His score was matched by Elkhorn's Danny Woodhead. The final spot went to Alex Schaake of Omaha who bested Papillion's Drew D'Ercole on the first playoff hole after both posted rounds of 72 (+1) .
