CENTREVILLE, Va. -- Former PGA Tour player Wally Armstrong earned the medal, Holly Hills Country Club head professional Mike McGinnis advanced for the fourth time, including his third in a row, and Senior tours veteran Bruce Lehnhard made it for the second time, as qualifying for the 17th U.S. Senior Open championship was held at Chantilly National Golf & Country Club yesterday.
Armstrong, a tour veteran of a dozen years, celebrated his 51st birthday with a 4-under-par 36-3268. The Orlando area resident chose the site because it enabled him to combine play with some personal business. He had four back-nine birdies, including three in row beginning at No. 15.
