80 players for 5 spots

Two-time PGA TOUR winner and 21-year professional Daniel Chopra turned back the clock to take medalist honors at Canoe Brook Country Club.

The 43-year-old Swede carded the low round of the site, a seven-under 65 on CBCC’s North course, to win by three at 11-under. Chopra made just two total bogeys to qualify for his third U.S. Open and first since 2008. He made the cut both times.

It will be Chopra’s first start in a major since the 2012 Open Championship. He’s ranked No. 794 and is currently on the Web.com Tour.

Amateurs Christopher Crawford and Scott Harvey joined Andy Pope at eight-under and Matthew Campbell at seven-under edged Roberto Diaz by one for the final spot.

Crawford is a 2016 Drexel graduate and former Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Year. He qualified for the 2016 U.S. Open by sinking a 40-footer for birdie. He stayed in the headlines last summer as his caddie broke an ankle in an Oakmont bunker during a practice round.

Harvey was the 2014 U.S. Mid-Amateur champion and competed in the 2015 Masters. The 39-year-old from Greensboro, North Carolina, is headed for his first U.S. Open.

Pope is a Xavier grad and former Atlantic 10 champion playing on the Web.com Tour. He qualified for his third consecutive U.S. Open despite two bogeys in his final three holes. He tied for 70th at Chamber’s Bay in 2015.

Diaz is the site’s first alternate followed by second alternate and 2014 NCAA individual champion from Stanford, Cameron Wilson.

The biggest name on site, 2016 Shell Houston Open champ, Jim Herman, was in position to advance with an opening 67 before sputtering to a 76 in round two to miss by nine strokes.
