U.S. OPEN GOLF. . . The Stanford men's golf team saw its season end at last week's NCAA Championships, but Cardinal sophomore Cameron Wilson appears far from being done for the season. Wilson is headed to the U.S. Open next week at the Olympic Club in San Francisco after making it through sectional qualifying on Monday at the Canoe Brook Country Club in Summit, N.J. Wilson shot a 36-hole score of 136 with rounds of 71 and 65 to earn medalist and low amateur honors. More importantly, he gained one of four spots out of the field of 73 for the U.S. Open, which begins June 14. Nearly 1,000 players nationwide were competing for 58 spots (from 11 sectional sites around the nation) for the 156-player field for the U.S. Open Championship, which will be played on the Lake Course at the Olympic Club. Wilson made nine birdies in his 36 holes, with 16 pars and seven bogeys. Wilson wasn't the only golfer with Stanford connections to make it through sectional qualifying as Casey Martin, 40, shot a 36-hole score of 138 at Emerald Valley Country Club in Creswell, Ore., and earned a trip to San Francisco.
