India’s ace golfer, Subhankar Sharma, has grabbed a spot in next week’s US Open Golf Championships with a solid display of 69-68 in the qualifiers played at Brookside GCC and Lakes Golf and Country Club in Columbus, US. Sharma who has already played the Augusta Masters this year on a special invite, has now qualified for the US Open.
“It was a great day for me. It was a long one with 36 holes but I am glad I played the Brookside in the morning as it is tougher with smaller greens. I grinded it out for a 69,” an ecstatic Sharma said after his qualification.
Subhankar earned a spot into the Open Championships at Carnoustie after winning the Joburg Open. He needs to stay in Top 100 of the world to play the last Major, the PGA Championships. However, two other Indians- Shiv Kapur- playing the qualifier at Walton Heath, Surrey and Arjun Atwal- playing in Tennessee- failed to earn a spot.
