Punching their U.S. Open tickets

*Updated: 12:25 p.m.

Here's a list of the collegians/amateurs who made it through yesterday's various sectional qualifiers and will join Florida State's Drew Kittleson (U.S. Amateur runner-up) in competing next week's U.S. Open at Bethpage Black.

Tyson Alexander, Florida

Josh Brock, UNC Wilmington

Bronson Burgoon, Texas A&M

Rickie Fowler, Oklahoma State

Clark Klaasen, Duke

Ben Martin, Clemson

Matt Nagy, Kennesaw State

Kyle Peterman, Western Illinois

Vaughn Snyder, Ohio State

Kyle Stanley, Clemson

Nick Taylor, Washington

Cameron Tringale, Georgia Tech

Drew Weaver, Virginia Tech

Stanley will turn pro the week after the U.S. Open, but remained an amateur to take advantage of his exemption through local qualifying because he was a member of the 2007 U.S. Walker Cup team.

Stanley, Taylor and Fowler all qualified for last year's U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, with Fowler making the cut and finishing as the low amateur.
