Anguiano Qualifies for U.S. Open
FULLERTON, Calif. – The 2014 Big West Conference Men's Golf Player of the Year, former Cal State Fullerton student-athlete Mark Anguiano, will play in the 116th U.S. Open, beginning Thursday at Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, Pa.

 

Anguiano qualified for the U.S. Open after tying for second (134, -9) in sectional qualifying on June 6, as play was split between The Olympic Club and Lake Merced Golf Club in Daly City, Calif., firing a 66 in round one (OC) and a 68 in round two (LM). He totaled 13 birdies on the day playing in one of 10 36-hole sectional qualifiers across the country.

"I am so proud of Mark," Cal State Fullerton Director of Golf and men's head coach Jason Drotter said. "This is quite an accomplishment, and one that is well deserved. I have always felt that it's not a matter of if, but when, as it relates to Mark's professional success. I feel very strongly that this is the first step on the way to a very successful career."

Anguiano will begin play at 8:46 a.m. ET, Thursday, in round one as fans can follow the action on Fox Sports 1 which starts live coverage at 7 a.m. ET.

The native of Whittier, Calif., has spent the last two years playing on the PGA Tour Latinoamerica, and this season has a 71.88 scoring average with one top-10 finish.

Anguiano (2011-14) concluded his career on top of the record books for most career rounds (129) and single-season top-10 finishes (9), and also headlined in career top-10 finishes (20) and set the lowest stroke average in a season during the 2013-14 campaign (70.31).

His Cal State Fullerton accolades included three Big West Conference First Team selections (2012-14), as well as an individual championship at the 2014 Folino Invitational and being honored on the 2014 PING All-West Team.

He ended the 2014 regular season ranked at No. 40 by Golfweek with a conference low 69.72 scoring average, and led the Titans to the program's first NCAA Regionals appearance that same year as Fullerton won back-to-back Big West Conference championships (2013, 2014).
