Warren Qualifies for United States Open

June 7, 2010

CLEMSON, SC – Former Clemson All-American Charles Warren qualified for the 2010 United States Open on Monday when he shot a 136 for 36 holes at Colonial Country Club in Memphis, then won a playoff for one of the final two spots. The 2010 US Open will be held at Pebble Beach, June 17-20.

Warren was an All-American at Clemson between 1994-98, including 1997 when he won the NCAA Championship, the only Clemson golfer to win the individual title. He was the first Clemson golfer inducted into the Clemson Ring of Honor this past fall.

Warren had rounds of 67-69 in posting his 136 on Monday. He was tied with four other players for 11th place and had to go into a playoff for the final two spots. He made the cut when he scored a birdie on the second playoff hole, a 208-yard par three. Warren made seven birdies in the first round and three in the second.

This will be Warren’s second US Open. Ironically, the last time he qualified was 2000 when it was at Pebble Beach. The 2010 US Open will also be at Pebble Beach. Warren had an solid US Open in 2000 as he finished 37yh with a 298 score after rounds of 75-74-75-74.

Warren will be one of three former Tigers in the 2010 US Open. Lucas Glover, an All-American at Clemson from 1997-2001 is the defending champion. Ben Martin, a senior on this year’s team, qualified for the 2010 US Open when he finished as runner-up in the 2009 US Amateur.
