Shocked Ramsay gets US Open spot
Scotland’s Richie Ramsay has been handed an unexpected ticket to next week’s US Open.
Scotland’s Richie Ramsay has been handed an unexpected ticket to next week’s US Open at the Conressional Country Club.
The Scot believed that his hopes of teeing it up at Congressional next Thursday had gone after he squandered a chance of qualifying at Walton Heath last month.
The former US amateur champion decided to leave the Surrey track course convinced that his 36-hole score was not good enough to secure any of the US Open spots on offer.
He opted instead to attend a friend’s wedding and found himself unable to return to the course in time when he was notified that his score had indeed been good enough to make the play-off for a berth.
Now, out of the blue, the US Golf Association has notified him that they have made two extra spots available to qualifying sites in England and Japan and that one of the extra berths had been granted to him.
Ramsay, who said at the time he felt ‘physically sick at missing out on the US Open’, will be joined in the field by Japan’s Masaya Tomida.
