A former Minnesota State High School champion at Minnetonka, Constable is still seeking a first made cut since he qualified for the PGA Tour last season.  

Despite a scoring average of 72.6 strokes, he missed the cut in all sixteen tournaments he qualified to play.

Constable will be joined by another former Minnesota Gopher in North Carolina this weekend as Elk River-native Clayton Rask also survived the rigorous U.S. Open qualifying tournaments.
