Jason Semelsberger has played countless rounds of golf in the past 12 years, but on June 2 he played two rounds in one day that changed his life. On that sweltering spring afternoon at El Caballero Country Club in Tarzana, Semelsberger's final putt fell and clinched a spot for the 18-year-old Newhall native in the U.S. Open--arguably the world's most prestigious and difficult golf tournament. He scrambled to rearrange his final exams at UCLA, where he is nearing the end of his freshman year.

The caddie's face went blank. In the heat of the moment, his uncle, Don Semelsberger, had left the club back on the seventh green.

Their imaginations ran wild, as happens with 12-year-olds, as they strolled along the fairways at North Ranch Country Club in 1990. They talked about their golf futures--playing together in college, turning pro someday. Sure, it seemed like a mere boyhood fantasy at the time--the figment of two young imaginations.
