Just heard (8am 11th June) - Ryan Evans has been called up to play in the US Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club this week. Ryan, who lives in Corby, was first reserve following the US Open Qualifier at Walton Heath GC, Surrey. He has just posted on Twitter that has received a call up to play. Ryan won the NGU County Championships at Oundle in 2007 and was a stalward of the NGU teams until he turned professional about 5 years ago.
Ryan joins Andrew "Beef" Johnson in the competition who won the Walton Heath Qualifier "Beef" is the course record holder at Oundle GC. In July 2003, Andrew, as we knew him then, returned a gross 67 when playing in the British Heart Foundation Regional Qualifier for their National Junior Championships. His round consisted of 13 pars and 5 birdies (if only we had copied the card!).
Oundle GC wishes both the best of luck in this most prestigious of competitions. Have a great time in the States - enjoy.
