Eagle River golfer Michael Oldenkamp finished fifth out of 10 players who entered the U.S. Open local qualifier on Wednesday, May 17 at Palmer Golf Course.

Oldenkamp shot a 77 to finish 10 shots behind winner Leon Horacio, a Chilean who now makes his home in Jupiter, Florida.

Horacio shot a bogey free round of 67 and was the only golfer in the field to shoot under par during the 18-hole qualifier. By winning the event, Horacio qualified to play in the sectional qualifier next month in Washington, where he’ll play for a spot in the U.S. Open.
