Constable, Rask Qualify for U.S. Open
June 2, 2014
Former Golden Gophers Donald Constable and Clayton Rask have both qualified for the 2014 U.S. Open, which runs June 12-15. Both finished high enough in Monday's sectional qualifiers to play in the major in Pinehurst, North Carolina.
Constable tied for second at the Woodmont Country Club qualifier in Rockville, Maryland. Fifty-nine players competed for four spots in the U.S. Open. Constable carded a 72 and a 69 to finish at 3 under.
Rask finished second in a qualifier that had just two available spots. He shot a 69 and a 72 for a 3-under-par effort at Emerald Valley Golf Course in Creswell, Oregon.
Constable was a 2011 PING All-Region and All-Big Ten selection as a Gopher. After transferring from Texas, he held a 73.07 stroke average in his time at Minnesota.
A four-time letterwinner for the Gophers, Rask was an All-Big Ten honoree as a senior. He recorded a stroke average of 74.47 as a collegian, including a mark of 72.94 his senior season.
