Stricker shot 67-65 over 36 holes on Monday.
Stricker played at the same qualifying tournament last year, but fell one shot short of playing in the U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club.
Erin Hills, located in Erin, Wis., will be the first U.S. Open in the state of Wisconsin. Wisconsin has hosted the four PGA Championships, the last of which was in 2015.
