Four more Canadians qualify for U.S. Open


It was a Victoria Day worth celebrating for a quartet of Canadians south of the border.

Playing in a 98-man U.S. Open final qualifier in Dallas, where 13 spots into the major championship were on the line, Mackenzie Hughes, Nick Taylor, Ben Silverman and Roger Sloan all punched their ticket into the field at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass., next month.

PGA Tour members Hughes (Dundas, Ont.) and Taylor (Abbotsford, B.C.), along with past PGA Tour member Silverman (Thornhill, Ont.), carded two-round totals of 9-under 133 to make the grade by two shots. Sloan, meanwhile, posted 7 under, which got him into a 6-man playoff with the last two spots on the line. Sloan (Merritt, B.C.) advanced with a birdie on the second hole. Adam Hadwin, of Abbotsford, B.C., was also in that playoff.

The quartet will join Corey Conners (Listowel, Ont.) at the U.S. Open the week after the RBC Canadian Open.

There may be more Canadians there as well. There are still nine U.S. Open final qualifiers to be played, including at RattleSnake Point Golf Club in Milton, Ont., the Monday of Canadian Open week.
