Jake Scott Earns Medalist Honors at U.S. Open Local Qualifier at Beechmont


Strongsville’s Jake Scott, a former Cleveland Amateur champion and now Elyria Country Club assistant pro, shot a bogey-free 6-under par score of 65 to pace a group of eight players who earned their way to Sectional Qualifying for the 2012 U.S. Open Championship.

Garrett Rank of Elmira, Ontario made two eagles in his round to finish in second at 5-under par, and Parker Reeves of Columbus finished in third at -4.

Massillon pro Vaughn Snyder nabbed the fourth spot with a 3-under par 68, and Ryan Yip from Indio, California nabbed fifth at -2.

A playoff for the final three spots was filled with six local players who all shot 1-under par 70. Advancing were Jacob McBride of Hartville, Dwayne Randall of Chardon, and Mark Evans of Massillon.

Eliminated in the playoff were Ryan Gutowski of Fairlawn, Dennis Miller of Mineral Ridge, and Eugene O’Byrne of Massillon.

119 players competed in the event, which was delayed by wet conditions on Tuesday, stopped because of darkness, and then finished today. Complete results below.
