Two-time champion Lee Janzen finally made it back to the U.S. Open on Monday from one of eight 36-hole qualifiers across the country.
Janzen had scores of 69-68 at Old Oaks and Century to earn the first of four spots available in the sectional qualifier in New York. The other three qualifiers were Jamie Lovemark, Pat Wilson and Rich Berberian Jr.
The 50-year-old Janzen won the U.S. Open at Baltusrol in 1993 and at Olympic Club in 1998. He kept trying to qualify when his 10-year exemption expired after the 2008 U.S. Open. He was disqualified in 2013 for wearing metal spikes at a golf club that bans them, and he missed by two shots last year.
The U.S. Open is June 18-21 at Chambers Bay south of Seattle.
