It was a great week for some of the Hambric Sports clients at the 114th playing of the US Open at Pinehurst No.2.
Brooks Koepka competed at Walton Heath on the Monday after the BMW PGA at Wentworth and ended the day securing 1 of the 14 spots on offer for the US Open. Brooks finished the week at Pinehurst in a tie for 4th position, which moves him from 96th to 70th in the Official World Golf Rankings. It was an amazing week for the young Floridian who guaranteed his return to the US Open next year, secured his full playing privileges on the PGA Tour for the 2014-15 seasons and, the final cherry on top had to be, in finishing in a tie for 4th, Brooks has been invited to compete at next year’s Masters Tournament at Augusta National. “The news just keeps on getting better and better”, said Koepka.
Dustin Johnson finished his week in a tie for 4th position with Brooks. He continues to show his fine form on the biggest stage and this week at Pinehurst was another example of DJ’s world class. Dustin remains at 15th on the World Rankings and 4th on the Fed Ex Cup Standings.
Cody Gribble, who went through the qualification process to compete at Pinehurst, finished in a tie for 21st in only his second start on the PGA Tour. The former University of Texas Longhorn shot a 1-under 69 on Sunday for a final score of 5-over 285. He improved his position 14 places from Saturday and was 2-under for the round through 11 holes. A great week for Cody!
Francesco Molinari finished best of the European clients in a tie for 23rd place. This finish moves Francesco from 46th to 42nd on the World Rankings.
Congrats to all involved on a great week and now we can start to look forward to The Open Championship at Hoylake.
