Individual National Champion. Team National Champion. U.S. Open Qualifier. For Oregon Ducks golfer Aaron Wise, the good times keep rolling.

Wise shot a nine-under 135 at the 36-hole U.S. Open section qualifier in Vancouver, Washington to qualify for his first major tournament. He turns pro this summer and will compete at the U.S. Open tournament June 16-19 at the Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, Pennsylvania.


During the qualifier, Wise sank seven birdies on the back nine during his first round and finished the second round with a 68. Not only did he qualify, he took home medalist honors. Unfortunately, teammate Sulman Raza did not fare as well, finishing 47th after shooting 12 over.

Wise just finished up his sophomore year, where he won three tournaments, the individual national championship and the team national championship. As if that wasn't enough, he was also named a PING first-team All-American. He'll have a chance to make even more history later this month.
