Scott qualifies for U.S. Open, extends majors streak
Adam Scott maintained his record of not missing a major in 17 years after qualifying for the U.S. Open.
The Australian has appeared in 67 straight majors since 2001, but was made to work hard for a place in next week's event in New York.
Scott carded a six-under-par 66 in the first round of sectional qualifying in Columbus, before an even-par 72 in round two left him sharing 10th place, which was enough to seal his passage through.
Fellow Australian Aaron Baddeley also tied for 10th and progressed with Scott.
With lots of attention paid to him the last few days, Adam Scott got the job done on the #RoadToShinnecock. Will we see more of this next week? Columbus, Ohio results: https://t.co/67KB01zkLMpic.twitter.com/24DS2oz2ma-- U.S. Open (USGA) (@usopengolf) June 5, 2018
