Qualified for his second consecutive U.S. Open, this time on the East Coast. Last year, Hagestad made it to his first U.S. Open by playing one of his two sectional rounds at Big Canyon Country Club in Newport Beach, Calif., his home course. This year he went to Canoe Brook C.C. in Summit, N.J., and posted 6-under 137 to garner one of the five spots. He made a 12-foot birdie putt on his final hole -- No. 9 of the South Course -- to lock up the berth. In 2016, Hagestad birdied four of the last five holes at Stonewall in Elverson, Pa., in rallying to defeat 2014 champion Scott Harvey in 37 holes in the championship match of the 2016 U.S. Mid-Amateur. The win earned him an invitation to the 2017 Masters, where he became the first invited U.S. Mid-Amateur champion to not only make the cut, but earned low-amateur honors. He and three-time U.S. Mid-Amateur champion Jay Sigel are the only Mid-Am champions to achieve that feat at Augusta National. Member of the victorious 2017 USA Walker Cup Team at The Los Angeles Country Club, another venue where Hagestad is a member.
