PLAYERS: Lee Janzen
Two-time champion Lee Janzen has been knocked out of U.S. Open qualifying for wearing metal spikes at a course that doesn't allow them. Janzen was at the 36-hole U.S. Open qualifier at Woodmont Country Club. He opened with a 75 on the North course when it was discovered he was wearing metal spikes. All players were informed of the rule against metal spikes in a May 20 letter from the USGA. Janzen said on Twitter that the rule was sent to him in an email. He says he was more concerned about his game than getting disqualified. The 75 made it highly unlikely he would have earned one of the eight spots at Woodmont to compete next week in the U.S. Open at Merion.
