#RoadToOakmont Begins

The U.S. Open Local Qualifier was at Bardstown Country Club at Maywood on Monday, May 9.  Over 100 amateur and Professional players from Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee and even a few stretching from coast to coast (South Carolina to Washington) competed in hopes of making it on the #RoadtoOakmont for the 2016 U.S. Open, held June 16-19 at Oakmont Country Club in Pittsburgh.  Six players (and two possible alternates) moving on from Bardstown Country Club will go to various sites around the country to compete in the popular "Golf's Longest Day" round of Sectional Qualifying. Leading most of the day was University of Kentucky golfer, Cooper Mussselman who fired a five-under-par round of 67.  The Louisville native's round was highlighted by six birdies.  Just behind him with rounds of four-under-par 68 were Musselman's teammate at Kentucky, Tyler "Chip" McDaniel of Manchester, Ashton Van Horne of Georgetown (a Belmont University golfer) and Ryan Botts of Lebanon, Tennesse (a Cumberland University golfer).  

Finishing at three-under-par 69 were Hurstbourne Country Club assistant professional, Jesse Massie and Eric Ansett, of Spokane, Washington.  Ansett plays his collegiate golf at Lipscomb University. Congratulations to Musselman on his medalist honors and best of luck to all six players as they progress! The two alternate positions went to 2015 Kentucky High School State Individual Champion C.J. Jones of Frankfort and Jason Allred of Scottsdale, Arizona, a participant on the Web.com Tour and former PGA Tour player. Allred won the playoff to take the first alternate position.
