University Place’s Michael Putnam fails in his bid to qualify for the U.S. Open

After being near the lead most of the day, he falters by going 5 over in the final six holes

A disappointing day for Michael Putnam put an even bigger damper on a poor day for local golfers trying to qualify for the U.S. Open later this month at Pinehurst.

Putnam, the PGA Tour player from University Place, was among the leaders most of the day during the 36-hole sectional qualifying in Columbus, Ohio. However, he went 5 over his final six holes to finish 67-73—140 and fell into a five-way playoff for the final three spots in the Open. He was eliminated on the second playoff hole and now is the second alternate. Kevin Chappell, who owns a house in Kirkland, failed to qualify with a 71-74—145.

In the Northwest qualifier at Emerald Valley in Creswell, Ore., three current and former Huskies fell short in their bids — Jonathan Sanders (74-72—146), Cheng-Tsung Pan (77-71— 148) and Nick Taylor (76-78—154). Joel Skarbo, a Highline High graduate, had a 68-80—148 at Emerald Valley. In Daly City, Calif., Husky Corey Pereira (71-71—142) came up short. In Memphis, former Husky Alex Prugh (68-70—138) was unsuccessful.
