9,086. I actually had to re-read the sentence in the article I was reading to make sure I got that number right. 9,086 men registered to compete in the 2009 US Open Qualifying. And to be accepted, an applicant is required to have a Handicap Index of no higher than 1.4 or be a professional. And they're all fighting to get into a field of only 156 players.
When I found Tees2Greens website and forum I found a happy place. There were great people there and in 2009 they asked me if I wanted my own blog space. It was a dream come true!! The site is down now, but I was able to get all of my posts to be able to post here. I will always be grateful for all of the Tees2Greens folks!!
