UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio—Davis Love III is going back to The Olympic Club for
the U. Emmitt Smith Jersey .S. Open, this time as
the 48-year-old Ryder Cup captain and not the reigning PGA champion. Even more
stunning is that Casey Martin and his cart will be there, too. A full day of
U.S. Open qualifying on Monday ended in Oregon with Martin, now the 40-year-old
golf coach at Oregon, making a 5-foot par putt on his last hole to earn a spot
next week at Olympic, where in 1998 he tied for 23rd while riding in a cart.
Martin has a rare circulatory disorder in his right leg, and he eventually won
his lawsuit against the PGA Tour to ride. “It means a lot,” Martin said, who is
cancelling plans to go to North Carolina on a recruiting trip. Love qualified
for the U.S. Open for the third time in the last six years with a 139 at Scioto
Country Club and Ohio States Scarlet Course. Love, who finished tied for 16th at
the Memorial on Sunday, said it never crossed his mind to just bag it and go
home rather than extend an already long week by playing 36 more holes. “No. Like
last year, statistically I hit the ball well enough at the U.S. and the British
to win,” he said. “I definitely want to play.” The 48-year-old Love has won 20
tournaments around the world, including the 1997 PGA Championship. He was among
16 players to qualify from the biggest of the 11 sectional qualifying sites
across the country on Monday. One of them wont even get started until Tuesday.
There was so much rain in Memphis, Tenn., that no one played more than a few
minutes. USGA officials hope the course is dry enough to squeeze in 36 holes.
The U.S. Open is June 14-17 at The Olympic Club in San Francisco, and the
48-year-old Love will be making his 23rd appearance in his national open. Others
who qualified from Scioto and Scarlet included medallist Charlie Wi,
Kevin Streelman, D.A. Points, Rod Pampling and Steve Marino, who only last week
returned from a four-month break to recovery from a bad shoulder. Love still
hasnt forgotten the details from a year ago, however, when he three-putted the
last hole he played at Colonial that cost him an automatic spot in the Open at
Congressional. He had to go through qualifying to get in the field. “I seem to
play well in the qualifying because I dont have a scoreboard to look at,” he
said. “You just play.” Love has been in captain mode off and on since being
selected for the matches this fall. He has been assessing potential players for
the American side and has played with several. One of them, former British Open
champ Ben Curtis, was in his threesome on Monday, although Curtis faded on his
second 18 and failed to make the Open field. Perhaps the biggest cheer of the
day came as darkness was falling at Scioto Country Club. On the fourth playoff
hole to decide the last qualifiers, 42-year-old Youngstown, Ohio, teaching pro
Dennis Millers 20-foot putt from the fringe stopped on the lip of the cup. After
the gallery of a few hundred groaned and Miller slowly started to walk to his
ball, if fell—touching off a huge celebration. Now Miller, a third alternate
whose name did not even appear on the tee sheet, will be playing in his first
U.S. Open—and will likely have to get someone to fill in for him back at the
course at Mill Creek Metroparks in Youngstown. “I cant believe what just
happened,” Miller said. “That was pretty incredible.” Most of the rest of the
field in the qualifier in suburban Columbus, Ohio, was filled with touring pros
who had just competed in the nearby Memorial. Among those who did not qualify
were two of the contenders at Jack Nicklaus tournament. Rory Sabbatini had the
lead with four holes left on Sunday but was overtaken when Tiger Woods birdied
three holes, including the 16th on an improbable 50-foot chip-in from thick
grass behind the green. Spencer Levin led going into the final round at
Muirfield Village and was still atop the leaderboard with nine holes left but
fell apart on the back nine with three bogeys and a double-bogey in a 75.
Sabbatini shot a 70 in his first 18 at Scarlet, but sagged to a 76 in the
afternoon to fall short. Levin, who could have earned an automatic berth in the
Open had he finished in the top two instead of tying for fourth at the Memorial,
followed a 72 at Scioto with a 74 at Scarlet. Levin still has a chance to make
the U.S. Open if he can crack the top 60 in the world after this week. Wi was
the medallist by three strokes. He opened with a 7-under-par 65 at Scarlet and
followed up with a 67 at Scioto. “This is only my second one. Its not easy to
get in,” said Wi, a South Korean native who grew up in California. His only
previous appearance was at Bethpage Black three years ago. “I always flew home
Sunday night because if I missed (in the qualifier) I was already home. This
worked out better. I took the strategy that if I missed Id be home for two
weeks. Thats probably not a good strategy.” But it worked out fine. In other
qualifiers Monday:—At Rockville, Md., Shane Bertsch was medallist and
received one of seven spots at Woodmont Country Club. Bertsch has played only
one other U.S. Open in his career, which also was at Olympic Club in 1998 when
he missed the cut. Also qualifying were Michael Thompson (142), Paul Claxton
(143), Cole Howard (143), Darron Stiles (143), Nicholas Thompson (143) and Jeff
Curl (143). Howard and Thompson were alternates out of 18-hole local qualifying
last month. Curl is the son of Rod Curl, the first full-blooded Native American
to win a PGA Tour event. —At Glen Ellyn, Ill., Tim Herron grabbed one of two
spots available at Village Links. Herron tied for 53rd in the 98 U.S. Open the
last time it was played at Olympic. —At Lecanto, Fla., Scott Langley made it
through local and sectional qualify for the second time in three years. Langley
made his U.S. Open debut as an amateur at Pebble Beach in 2010 and tied for 16th
to share low-amateur honours. Brooks Koepka earned the last spot in a playoff
over 14-year-old Andy Zhang of China, who was bidding to become the youngest
ever in the U.S. Open. —At Springfield, Ohio, Brice Garnett was medallist and
earned one of two spots from Springfield Country Club. It will be his first PGA
Tour-sanctioned event. —At Canoe Brook in New Jersey, all four spots went to
players who had to make it through 18-hole local qualifying and 36-hole
sectional qualifying. Leading the way was Cameron Wilson, an amateur who shot 65
on the North course in the afternoon. —At Houston, Bob Estes returns to the
U.S. Open for only the second time in the last five years. Estes shot 138 at
Lakeside Country Club to get one of three spots. Alistair Presnell of Australia
and Brian Rowell earned the last two spots in a 4-for-2 playoff. Jordan Spieth,
whose Texas Longhorns won the NCAA title on Sunday in Los Angeles, missed a
5-foot birdie putt in the playoff and was eliminated. —In Suwanee, Ga.,
Jason Bohn was the medallist and got one of three spots. One of others went to
Casey Wittenberg, a former U.S. Amateur runner-up still trying to reach the PGA
Tour. —In Creswell, Ore., Martin finished in the dark to earn medallist
honours. The other spot will be decided in a playoff Tuesday morning between
Daniel Miernicki and Nick Sherwood. Morris Claiborne Jersey .S. Open, while

—Swathed in the red-and-yellow colours of Spain, hundreds of thousands packed
central Madrid to give a heros welcome Monday to “La Roja”—the national
soccer team that erased the countrys gloomy mood by winning the Euro 2012
Championship with such flair. With the celebrated team back home on native soil,
it was time to party for a second straight night. King Juan Carlos and members
of the royal family congratulated players at the Zarzuela Palace outside Madrid
within hours of their returning from Kyiv, where they crushed Italy 4-0 to
defend their title Sunday night. The Iberia plane that brought them to the
Spanish capital bore the logo “proud of our national team.” Team captain and
goalie Iker Casillas proudly held the tournament cup as he emerged from the
plane in Madrid with coach Vicente del Bosque. In the palace gardens, the king,
Prince Felipe, his wife, Princess Letizia, and one of the kings two daughters,
Princess Elena, chatted and laughed with the players while two of the monarchs
grandchildren gazed at and touched the cup. “Congratulations on behalf of the
family and the whole of Spain,” the king said. “You have made the entire country
happy.” In town, a multitude jammed the paths and roads along a near
five-kilometre route chanting “Champions, champions Ole, Ole, Ole!” Blowing
horns, they put up with a baking evening sun to catch a glimpse of their heroes
as they paraded by on an open air bus ride for a victory rally in the central
Cibeles plaza. The players were escorted by police on horseback and motorbikes.
Thousands more fans cheered on from apartment balconies. The players danced and
sang, raised the trophy and sprayed sparkling wine on the screaming, flag-waving
crowds below as the bus crawled along at a snails pace. In Cibeles plaza,
organizers sprayed the crowds with water hoses to help them keep cool as they
awaited the teams arrival. The teams elegant performance in the Euro 2012 final
raised spirits across a country drowning in financial woes and rampant
unemployment. It also made them the first team ever to bookend a World Cup
championship (2010) with two Euro Cup triumphs (2008, 2012). “This is historic
and Im here to support the team. They just might be able to do it again so we
can win the (2014 World Cup) in Brazil,” said Jose Luis Clemente, 47, a bus
inspector clad in the team jersey. “Its a rare positive point against such a
terrible crisis in my country. It gives you some relief.” Still, he was
realistic. “No football win is going to solve the crisis. Thats work for the
economists and the politicians,” he added. The victory even had some SSpaniards
offering a tongue-in-cheek suggestion: Why not have the players run the country
instead of Spains feckless politicians? In one newspaper cartoon, del Bosque is
surrounded by Casillas and other stars such as Xavi Hernandez and Andres
Iniesta, who are all dressed up in suits for a new line of work. Brandon Carr Jersey. “The solution to our
problems: the government of prime minister del Bosque and his ministers,” read
the vignette in El Mundo. As the country recovered from a national hangover of
elation, pride and booze, Spaniards soaked up sweet memories of a night no one
will forget. For a few hours, the realities of 25 per cent unemployment, a
grinding recession and a banking bailout from the European Union to the tune of
up to C100 billion (C$128 billion) were put aside. “No team has ever done what
they have done, and it helps you to stop thinking about the crisis for 90
minutes during the game and the next day for the party,” said Carlo del Pino,
25, a university student. Del Pino said he hopes to teach physical education and
coach one day but prospects are grim for graduates now with cutbacks in
education funding, teacher pay cuts and layoffs of temporary teachers. “I dont
know where I will be working when I graduate, whether its in Spain, Portugal or
some other country,” he said. “But all the Spanish kids who are here cheering
the team may want to do sports because of the victory, so that could help me.”
Retired air force officer Ramon Ramirez, 76, looked a bit out of place, dressed
smartly in long sleeve formal shirt and pressed jeans amid a sea of folks decked
out in red and yellow as he waited for the team to pass. “For Spain, the
headlines around the world have finally changed to good instead of the bad weve
seen for months. Lets hope it continues,” he said. Maria Jose Herraiz, a
54-year-old homemaker, was so nervous she had to listen to the game on the radio
instead of watching it on TV. “When I heard people scream Goal! I would run to
the TV,” she said. She called the victory marvellous, a potent shot of
mood-boosting adrenalin for people sorely in need of it, but said reality would
come back soon. “It will be a sort of flower that blooms for just one day,
because economic problems do not go away just because Spain wins,” Herraiz said.
Her two adult children—aged 26 and 28—are both still living at home. They
are struggling on rock-bottom salaries as low as C300 ($384) a month for
half-day work despite being a computer scientist and a physicist. Still, for one
night, they came home just before dawn after a rousing celebration, their faces
painted in red and yellow. ’ ’ ’
