Oakmont pro Gee among 4 players to advance to U.S. Open Sectional

Paul Schofield

Two PGA Tour LatinoAmerica players and two from Western Pennsylvania claimed the four spots at the U.S. Open First Stage qualifier at The Club of Nevillewood on a damp and dreary Monday.

Raoul Menard, a native of Granby, Quebec City, Canada, shot a 5-under-par 67 to grab medalist honors. The 2015 graduate of North Carolina-Charlotte began his round with three consecutive birdies starting on the second hole. He had a bogey and two birdies on the back nine.

Avon Lake, Ohio, native Beau Titsworth, who also plays on the PGA Tour LatinoAmerica, tied for second place along with Laurel graduate Evan Long and Oakmont head professional Devin Gee at 2-under par.

Tanner Grzegorczyk earned the first alternate spot by shooting 1-under.

Titsworth is a graduate of St. Ignatius in Cleveland and a 2016 Oklahoma graduate.

Long is a 2017 graduate of Laurel near New Castle and is a sophomore at Minnesota. Gee has been the head pro at Oakmont since 2017. He started at Oakmont as an intern in 2006.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
