PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Besides Tony Finau, two other Utahns, Zac Blair and Mike Weir, are playing in the U.S. Open this week.

Blair, who grew up in Ogden and played for BYU, qualified earlier this month in a sectional at Springfield, Ohio, where he tied for first. This will be Blair’s second Open, as he also qualified in 2014 at Pinehurst, where he finished in a tie for 40th place.
