Estes earns third trip to Pebble Beach
THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- Bob Estes has earned another trip to Pebble Beach by claiming one of the two final spots in a rain-delayed qualifier for the U.S. Open.
Estes had rounds of 69-67 at The Club at Carlton Woods and joined Robert Gates in getting one of the final two spots among 13 sectional qualifiers throughout the country. The qualifier did not end until Tuesday because of storms.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo withdrew from the qualifier Monday when it became clear he would not make it.
