The left-hander qualified for this third U.S. Open despite having few competitive rounds. The 36-hole sectional at Canoe Brook C.C. in Summit, N.J., was just his second competition of the year, following his local qualifier a month earlier. Wilson, the 2014 NCAA individual champion from Stanford University, shot 7-under 136 to share medalist honors with mini-tour pro Callum Hill. Wilson played the Web.com Tour in 2017, posting just three top-25 finishes in 21 events. But he failed to retain his privileges for the 2018 season. Said the last time he was at Shinnecock was when he was running photo cards for the USGA staff during the 2004 U.S. Open when he was 11 years old. Became just the third Stanford golfer to win an NCAA title behind the late Sandy Tatum and Tiger Woods. His mother, Myra Gelband, was a longtime Sports Illustrated reporter.
