Old Overton Club’s assistant professional Todd McCorkle fired a three-under-par 69 to claim the lone spot on offer in Sectional Qualifying for the U.S. Senior Open at Wynlakes Golf & Country Club in Montgomery on Tuesday.
He advances to the U.S. Senior Open to be played at Del Paso CC in Sacramento, Calif., June 25-28.
McCorkle, who just returned from making the cut in the Senior PGA Championship, finished his round in fine style with four birdies in a row, from holes 15-18, to book his spot. He edged out first alternate Tommy Brennan by one shot, with Ben Bates, Jeff Copeland and Javier Sanchez in a tie for third on 71. Sanchez claimed the second alternate spot after a playoff.
In a roller-coaster round, McCorkle had three other birdies, added to his closing four, against a double bogey and two bogeys.
