UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio (AP) -- Davis Love III will have to worry about captaining this fall's U.S. Ryder Cup team a little later.
Love qualified for his 23rd U.S. Open, playing 36 holes in 2 under in rounds at Scioto Country Club and Ohio State's Scarlet Course. He was one of 16 players at the biggest of the 11 qualifiers across the country on Monday.
Others making the grade included medalist Charlie Wi, Kevin Streelman, D.A. Points, Steve Marino and Rod Pampling.
The U.S. Open will be played the week after next at The Olympic Club in San Francisco.
The field in suburban Columbus, Ohio, was filled with touring pros who had just competed in the nearby Memorial.
The 48-year-old Love has won 20 tournaments around the world, including the 1997 PGA Championship.
