UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Rising juniors Chris Houston (Gilford, N.H.) and JD Dornes (Lancaster, Pa.) will advance to their respective sectional qualifying rounds for the U.S. Open.

Through high wind conditions, Houston marked a 75 at the Point Judith Country Club in Narragansett R.I. Tuesday, the second lowest score of the day behind Robert Leopold.

Dornes shot a 1-over 71 and finished second at the Blue Ridge Country Club in Harrisburg, Pa. Thursday to secure his spot in the sectional.

The two Penn Staters are among a record-breaking 10,127 players attempting to qualify for the 2014 U.S. Open, scheduled for June 12-15 at Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina.

The 18-hole local qualifying rounds will be held across 111 different sites through tomorrow, May 19, while 36-hole sectional qualifying is set to begin May 26 across the globe.
