CLEVELAND, Ohio - Former Cleveland State golfer Jake Scott (Strongsville, Ohio) shot a six-under-par 65 to win the 2012 U.S. Open Local Qualifier at Beechmont Country Club on Tuesday.

Scott blistered the front nine with a five-under 31 and shot a one-under 34 on the back nine.

The event was halted yesterday due to darkness and concluded on Wednesday morning with the top eight finishers earning a spot at the U.S. Open Sectional Qualifying.
