Another Quad City native is making news today. According to, former Bettendorf High School and local professional golfer Michael Wuertz was a medalist at last Monday's U.S. Open qualifier in Burlington, IA.

He has earned a trip to Memphis, Tenn., to compete in sectional qualifying on June 5.

This will be his second trip to Memphis and he feels like he's much more prepared for this go around.

Good luck, Michael!
