Final Qualifying: Shot 70-69 at The Bear's Club in Jupiter, Fla., on June 3

The Florida State University All-American will make his U.S. Open debut after posting 5-under 139 at the final qualifier held at The Bear's Club. Clanton currently is No. 8 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking after winning three collegiate tournaments in the spring. He finished fifth in the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship and fifth in the NCAA Stanford (Calif.) Regional in leading the Seminoles to the NCAA Championship, where they lost in the championship final to Auburn. Clanton shared runner-up honors with five other golfers in the NCAA Division I Championship at the Omni La Costa Resort's North Course, one stroke behind winner Hiroshi Tai of Georgia Tech. Clanton went 2-1 in match play, losing to Auburn's JM Butler in the championship match, 2 and 1. In 2021, Clanton advanced to the semifinals of the U.S. Junior Amateur at The Country Club of North Carolina, just a short drive from Pinehurst No. 2. He also qualified for match play in last year's U.S. Amateur.
