With two superb rounds and a top-four finish, Grant Haney would be in line to punch his ticket to New York to take part in the prestigious 109th U.S. Open Championship. Haney, a 2003 St. Francis High graduate, basically needed to play the two best rounds of his life to compete in a championship with Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els and others. Unfortunately for Haney, his bid to compete in his first major event fell short, as he finished with a two-round score of 160 on Monday in a sectional qualifying event at Saticoy Country Club in Somis.

Q. The NBC television network has come under fire for omitting the words “under God” from a broadcast of the Pledge of Allegiance shown before the U.S. Open golf championship. The video montage of patriotic images including the American flag was dubbed with children reciting the Pledge — without the phrases “under God” and “indivisible.” A second showing of the video also left out the phrase “one nation.” NBC's omission has caused a storm of outrage, with demands for the people responsible for cutting the Pledge to be fired and calls for a campaign to boycott NBC shows and its advertisers springing up on social media and blogs.
