So awesome! Crazy that his partner for the qualifier was a previous US Open champ.

Actually, Mario got 8 birdies and 1 bogey in his 7-under 65 second round in the Dallas Regional, which was played on Monday and Tuesday ... interrupted by foul weather). This followed his even-par 70 in round one of the two-round qualifier.

Mario finished in a 3-way tie for 4th place, with 10 golfers advancing to the U.S. Open to be played June 17-20 at Torrey Pines (South) in La Jolla, Calif.

Here's a link to the Dallas Regional's leaderboard: https://www.usopen.com/qualifying/final/...ab=results

(The last qualifier, Luis Fernando Barco, won a playoff over nine others who were all tied at -4. He is thought to be the first Peruvian golfer to qualify to play in one of professional golf's four "majors" ... the U.S. Open, Masters, PGA Championship and The (British) Open.)

(Carmona's playing partner, UAB alum and 2010 U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell, withdrew when he was -1 under after 15 holes of his second round.)

Congrats to Mario and the other qualifiers. Gotta love the US Open format that gives anyone with the skill a chance to perform on the big stage.

Always nice to see a Rice golfers' name show up on CBS. I'm watching the Travelers Open Final Round, and they're recapping results from some other tours, and I see Mitchell Meissner finished T8th at the Banco del Pacifico Open on the PGA Latinoamerica Tour today. Meissner and Carmona were teammates at Rice.
