AP Golf Writer

POWELL, Ohio (AP) — Fran Quinn is the oldest player to make it through 36-hole qualifying for this year’s U.S. Open. Quinn is 57 and played the qualifier in Purchase, New York, with 23-year-old son Owen. Only the father made it through. It was one of nine sites in the U.S. and Canada. Up for grabs were 49 spots to get into The Country Club in two weeks outside Boston. Among those who made it were PGA Tour rookie Davis Riley and college stars Chris Gotterup of Oklahoma and Sam Bennett of Texas A&M. Weather prevented some qualifiers from finishing until Tuesday.
