It’s every golfer’s dream. For Cole Miller, it became a reality.
The former Northwestern Lehigh High School student-athlete and three-time Times News Golfer of the Year, qualified for the U.S. Open on Monday. He earned his spot by taking third place at a 36-hole sectional qualifier at Woodmont Country Club in Rockville, MD. He will now get to tee it up with the world’s best at this year’s U.S. Open, which will be held June 14-17 at Shinnecock Hills in Southampton, New York.
Extra innings are nothing new to both Birches and Northampton Legion teams.
Wednesday night saw Game 2 of a best-of-three series turn into an extra inning game.
This time however, Northampton only needed one more extra frame to score a 5-4 win over Birches to advance to the next round in Northampton County (NORCO) Legion playoff action.
Northampton manager Mike Bodnar expected nothing less against Birches, especially playing on the same field where a regular season meeting extended longer than seven innings.
