He birdied the first three holes on the Lakes course, en route to an opening-round 5-under 67, which left him tied for fourth after the first 18 holes.

Campbell won the 2005 US Open at Pinehurst after getting into the tournament via the Walton Heath qualifying tournament - the first time it had been held.

Victorian Herbert, 22, shot 66-64 at Portland Golf Club to win his sectional by three shots and qualify for his first US Open.

"I'm pretty pumped to make my major championship debut, it's definitely something you dream about as a kid growing up and playing golf", Herbert said.

After losing his PGA Tour card for the season, this is a huge boost for the Manawatu professional who will be looking to make the most of the opportunity on the big stage.

Georgia Golf Hall of Famer and 2016 U.S. Senior Open victor Gene Sauers of Savannah finished as second alternate at 1-over 145 (73-72).

"I have never played there so we were told we can start practice rounds Sunday and so I will get up there and get a feel for the course and see how I do", said DeMorat who plans to turn pro before the U.S. Open.


Scott kept alive his 17-year streak playing in all the majors with a two-putt from 30 feet for par on his final hole at The Lakes Golf and Country Club in Westerville, Ohio.

"It was certainly nice to continue the form from yesterday's round into today and I'm just very happy and hopefully it can continue for another week or so entering the US Open".

Among those who failed to qualify were Vijay Singh and 19-year-old Joaquin Niemann, who contended last week at the Memorial.

Steve Stricker, 51, earned one of the qualifying spots at the Memphis sectional, where he tied for second with Canada's Mackenzie Hughes, behind medalist Sam Burns.

Wilkinson, who plays the Web.Com Tour, was also successful in Sectional Qualifying in 2016. The playoff included Christian DiMarco, the son of Chris DiMarco.

The Australian list for the US Open is: Scott, Baddeley, Jones, Herbert, Jason Day, Marc Leishman, Cameron Smith, Jason Scrivener, David Bransdon. Garrett Rank, a Canadian amateur who is a referee in the National Hockey League, earned his spot at the qualifer in Roswell, Georgia.
