Three former or current UCLA golfers enjoyed solid performances at the 111th U.S. Open that concluded on Sunday at Congresional Country Club in Bethesda, MD.
Chappell fired a final round 66 (-5) -- tied for the best round of the day -- to finish the tournament at 278 (-6). His card on Sunday featured seven birdies and two bogeys. As a result of his top 10 finish, he will receive an exemption to play in the 2012 U.S. Open at San Francisco's Olympic Club and earned a date at the 2012 Masters. He played the final 54 holes in 11-under par after posting a five-over par 76 in the opening round. Finally, he was tied with Robert Garrigus for the low American finisher.
Cantlay, the low amateur of the tournament, tied for 21st place at 284 (E) after posting a final round score of 72 (+1). He played the final 54 holes in four-under par. As the low amateur, he receives a gold medal and an exemption into the U.S. Amateur in August.
Jobe tied for 23rd at 285 (+1) after carding a final round 74 (+3).
