Former New England Patriots running back Danny Woodhead shot an even-par 71 at Omaha Country Club on Wednesday to advance into the sectional qualifying for the U.S. Open, June 16-19.

The 37-year-old Nebraska native was one of five to advance from the 84-player field in Omaha.

Woodhead signed for a scorecard featuring four birdies against four bogeys alongside 10 pars. His even-par score was bettered by only two players: pro Corbin Mills (67) and Conner Peck (70).

The 36-hole sectionals will take place at 11 courses on either May 23 or June 6. Those who advance from the sectionals will secure a spot in the 2022 U.S. Open field at The Country Club in Brookline, which is located about 25 miles north of Gillette Stadium.
