Adam Scott catches last bus to US Open through OH qualifier

Adjust Comment Print

His two rounds of 68 and 70, to finish six under par were highlighted by a spectacular hole in one on the 6th hole during his second round which put him inside the all-important top four who booked their ticket to Shinnecock Hills Golf Club for next week's second major of the year.

After losing his PGA Tour card, Wilkinson's world ranking slipped from 495 to 754 this year as he battled away on the secondary Web.com Tour in the US.

Scott wasn't sure he was going to play the qualifier.

South Africa's Dean Burmester has qualified for the 118th US Open at Shinnecock Hills from June 14-17.

Among those who failed to qualify were Vijay Singh and 19-year-old Joaquin Niemann, who contended last week at the Memorial. Scott came into the final round tied for 11th, but a one-over 71 saw him fall to 35th.

Jutanugarn confessed the memory of the ANA loss was coming back to her after she blew that tee shot into the woods on Sunday. Hyo-Joo Kim hits out of the bunker to the 18th green during the second hole of a playoff in the final round of the U.S.

"Increased player information is at the core of what today's fan demands during live sporting events", said Navin Singh, USGA Head of Global Content and Media Distribution, through a press release.

Much of the last month, Adam Scott was asked about how he planned to qualify for this year's U.S. Open.

"I just had to grind it out", Schniederjans said. "But I set some good goals at the start of the season and I will just keep working to achieve them". The form has been coming around, so if I can have a nice week this week preparing and get myself in shape, I am really looking forward to Shinnecock. Lowry was runner-up in the Open at Oakmont two years ago, while Im now leads the Web.com Tour money list. The medalist was Sam Burns, the victor of the inaugural Savannah Golf Championship on the Web.com Tour earlier this year. Former Oregon golfer Aaron Wise, who recently won the AT&T Byron Nelson for his first PGA Tour title, also qualified. Rank, an National Hockey League referee, shared medalist honors with Michael Hebert to get one of three spots in the qualifier in Roswell, Georgia.

The eventual US Open champion had to sink a six-foot birdie putt on the last hole of qualifying to secure his place in the U.S. Open and the rest is history. Scott withdrew from that event after Monday's qualifier.
