Jim Empey remembers playing his first round of golf as a USC player in 1980. He shot a 79. Having played golf for only three years before entering USC, where he was a walk-on, Empey was pretty impressed with his score. Beaming, he handed his card to the assistant coach. But the coach asked, disappointedly, "What happened?" It was then that Empey decided he needed to set his standards higher. He eventually became USC team captain.

The elimination process through playoffs is a staple in sports in the United States. However, in U.S. Open golf qualifying there aren't any second chances such as a best-of-seven series in the NBA or the World Series. It's an exceptionally tight squeeze for players trying to qualify for the U.S. Open on June 17-20 at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, N.J. Nowhere is this more evident than the sectional qualifying that will be held Monday at Valencia Country Club.
