South grad Freeman advances at U.S. Open sectional

FARGO – Fargo South graduate Ben Freeman carded a two-under 70 and was one of three golfers to advance in U.S. Open Local Qualifying at the Westward Ho Country Club in Sioux Falls, S.D.

Nate Barbee of Dakota Dunes, S.D., had a four-under 68 and Bobby West of Watertown, S.D., tied Freeman at two shots back. Freeman, just coming off a stint with the Gateway Tour in Arizona, was four-under through six holes.

“I’ve been playing better in the last month,” he said.

All three players, who beat out a field of 46, advance to the Sectional Qualifying in Chicago on June 4.
