After playing two Open Championships and one PGA Championship, this will be his first US Open as he looks to join fellow Kiwi and 2005 US Open champion, Michael Campbell in the history books.

However, even a victory at the FedEx St Jude Classic would not be enough for World No.851 Stuart Appleby, Greg Chalmers (No.533) and Cameron Percy (No.509) to crack the top 60 golfers who automatically qualify for the US Open on June 11.

Georgia Golf Hall of Famer and 2016 U.S. Senior Open victor Gene Sauers of Savannah finished as second alternate at 1-over 145 (73-72).

"Massively excited to qualify for my fourth major, I have never played the US Open before, so to get to play one in NY at Shinnecock at one of the most iconic US Open venues is going to be pretty special, I can't wait", Fox said.

Despite saying the two sides made "real progress", Pompeo also cautioned that there might be no quick solution. In the meeting, Lavrov invited Kim Jong Un to visit Russia and meet with the Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The unique thing about his qualification is that Campbell qualified for the US Open through the same sectional qualifying.

"I'm pretty pumped to make my major championship debut, it's definitely something you dream about as a kid growing up and playing golf", Herbert said.

Ollie Schniederjans shot rounds of 67 and 71 to qualify for next week's U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, New York. It will be Fox's first trip to the U.S. Open while Scrivener will play a Major for the first time in his career.

Lutterus appeared to be still in control through 9 holes of round two before dropping three shots over his closing nine to miss a potential playoff by one.

"It is a nice streak to keep going; it'd be better if I win the US Open", Scott told Australian Associated Press today.

Scott shot a 1-over 73 in the final round in Dublin, leaving him T-35 for the tournament and still outside the top 60 in the world rankings.

"I'm very excited, I'm looking forward to it", said Herbert who will also make his first appearance at The Open later this year. The third round Saturday and Sunday's final round will both be broadcast by Fox with additional coverage of featured groups and holes on usopen.com and the U.S. Open app.

Steve Stricker, 51, earned one of the qualifying spots at the Memphis sectional, where he tied for second with Canada's Mackenzie Hughes, behind medalist Sam Burns.
