May 14, 2004

UCLA senior Steve Conway advanced to the sectional qualifying for the 104th U.S. Open by firing a five-under par 67 in local qualifying at the Newport Beach Country Club on Wednesday.

The U.S. Open is scheduled for June 17-20 at Shinnecock Hills in Southhampton,NY.

Also qualifying was Eric Vallely, a former three-year UCLA volleyball letterman (1996-98). Vallely shot a four-under par 68 and won a four-man playoff to advance to the next stage along with Peter Tomasulo, a senior at Cal.

Vallely indicated that he would travel to Hawaii's Turtle Bay Resort for sectional qualifying on June 7.

Head Coach O.D. Vincent posted a 69, missing the playoff by a stroke.
