2011 U.S. Open: Sergio Garcia Qualifies For Tournament, Vijay Singh Does Not

There were a number of surprises on a day of qualifying for the 2011 U.S. Open. First, Sergio Garcia, who wasn't even expected to even participate in qualifying, instead participated in his sectional qualifying and survived a seven-way playoff in which four players qualified. Meanwhile, Vijay Singh, fresh off shooting a 65 at the final round of the Memorial, didn't even bother to show up to his qualifying round, putting his 67-major streak in serious jeopardy.

There were 11 qualifying sites around the country. Garcia qualified in Memphis in a surprise, while Singh withdrew from his qualifier in Columbus. Among the others that qualified for the U.S. Open include Sam Saunders, who is Arnold Palmer's grandson, and Maryland native Fred Funk. David Duval, Rocco Mediate and Ben Curtis.

The 2011 U.S. Open will take place from June 16-19 at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md, returning to that site for the first time since 1997.
