Scott Langley, who recently won the individual title at the NCAA Championship, is going to play the weekend at his first U.S. Open.
The 21-year-old amateur from the University of Illinois shot a 69 on Friday that left him in a logjam at 2 over for the tournament – which is just five shots off the lead. Langley has been extremely accurate off the tee this week, hitting all but five fairways in the first two rounds, and 22 of 36 greens in regulation.
Langley should have a comfort zone at Pebble Beach. After all, he teamed with Dana Quigley to win what is now known as the Home Care and Hospice First Tee Open at Pebble Beach in 2006. – Helen Ross
