Adam Scott books his place in the US Open….just!

Grant SmithJun 08, 2018

There were 860 golfers competing for 74 spots at U.S. Open sectional qualifiers, with all of them in the U.S. taking place on Monday. Hendrix made par to finish as first alternate. The top 60 in the world after next week get into the US Open, but the 37-year-old Australian had already decided that he wasn't playing the FedEx St. Jude Classic this week in Memphis, Tennessee.

The longest day of golf featured 11 sectional qualifiers across eight time zones, from England to California, with 869 players trying to earn 71 spots.

"I am just really happy and excited to have this chance".

"To be honest I just got it in the hole really well, I didn't feel I played that special".

Fox and FS1 will split television coverage of the first and second rounds of the U.S. Open on Thursday and Friday, June 14 and 15.

Ireland's Shane Lowry and South Korean Im Sung-jae punched their tickets to Shinnecock in Columbus, sharing medalist honors at nine-under. Plus, it's always interesting to see Tour players get to play 36 holes in shorts. Keegan Bradley, who won the 2011 PGA Championship, also advanced, as did India's Shubhankar Sharma, who has won twice on the European Tour.

The U.S. Open grants 76 exemptions for a total field of 156. 2 and 4, along with an 15-foot putt for par on No. 3, to help keep his momentum.

Michael Putnam almost didn't make it to The Lakes after he opened with a 1-over 73 at Brookside. My caddy told me to make my two best swings and I followed my tee shot with a nice wedge from the middle of the fairway.

He had a chance to do that at the Memorial Tournament last weekend.

Then in sectional qualifying at Woodmont Country Club in Maryland, Wilkinson's disappointing year took a turn for the better when he shot 68 and 70 to finish second, two shots behind Colombia's Sebastian Munoz to snare one of four spots on offer there. Stricker shot 65 and tied for second with Mackenzie Hughes of Canada. Major winners and players who qualified for the Tour Championship are in, as are the top ten from the previous year's national championship. He didn't have much stress after opening with a 62.
