Final Qualifying: Shot 70-69 at Dallas (Texas) Athletic Club (Blue & Gold Courses) on May 20

The 2023 U.S. Amateur semifinalist will make his first U.S. Open start after shooting 3-under-par 139 at the Dallas Athletic Club qualifier and then surviving a 7-for-6 playoff for the final spots. Bell, a Tallahassee, Fla., resident who plays for the University of Florida, defeated several big-name players en route to the final four last August at Cherry Hills Country Club. That included University of Tennessee standout Bryce Lewis (Round of 64), North Carolina's Maxwell Ford (Round of 16) and University of Virginia All-American Ben James (quarterfinals), who was a member of the victorious 2023 USA Walker Cup Team. He then fell to eventual winner Nick Dunlap, 3 and 2, in the semis. This was the second consecutive year that Bell competed in U.S. Open final qualifying. Bell also qualified for the 2021 U.S. Junior Amateur and 2022 U.S. Amateur.  This past season as a sophomore, Bell registered a 71.5 stroke average with four top-10 finishes, including a tie for second at the Schenkel Invite.
