He was vying for one of just 58 spots in the 36-hole qualifying course. Eleven other sites nationwide also participated. He shot rounds of 68 and 66 to qualify. This is Lucas' third year in the professional ranks.
The 26-year-old has a lot of support, including brother Justin, 29, who is the top-ranked professional bass fisherman in the country.
"Holy freaking smokes!" Justin said on Facebook, Monday. "My brother just qualified for the U.S. Open next week in Washington! I feel like I just won another Elite Series event I am so excited for him! He has worked so hard and has been so close before. He is so deserving! Congrats Kevin!! #usopen #pgatour"
The two are also brothers to Joe Lucas, 27, who retired from the mixed martial arts circuit recently.
