Joel Dahmen, a Clarkston High graduate and the No. 81 golfer on the Official World Golf Rankings, has been added as an alternate to play in his first U.S. Open, which begins Thursday and runs through Sunday at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in California.

Dahmen announced the news over Twitter on Sunday night after he was named the second-to-last entrant invited to the tournament.

“To say I’m pumped would be an understatement,” he wrote.

Dahmen, who sits 42nd in the FedExCup rankings, shot a 4-under at Scioto Country Club in last week’s Columbus (Ohio) Sectional Qualifying Round, missing the cut by just a stroke with a 15th-place finish.

But considering Dahmen’s position as the first alternate in what Golf Channel called a “loaded Columbus sectional,” the U.S. Golf Association gave him an invite as the 155th participant — out of 156 — to the 119th U.S. Open.

The 7,075-yard, par-71 Pebble Beach tournament will be Dahmen’s second-career showing in a PGA major golf championship, and second of 2019.

In mid-May, Dahmen participated in his first major — the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black Course in New York. He made the cut, but struggled through the last two rounds, ending with a 12-over and tying for 71st.

Two weeks prior, Dahmen carded a 12-under aggregate to finish second outright at the Wells Fargo Championship, staged at Charlotte’s Quail Hollow Club. It matched his best finish in a PGA event and was his second top-10 placing this year.

So far, Dahmen has earned just over $1.8 million in 2019 for his work.
