NOTTINGHAMSHIRE, ENGLAND – Former ETSU men’s golf standout Rhys Enoch qualified for the 2018 Open Championship after claiming one of the 12 spots available from four final qualifying events held around Britain.
Enoch claimed one of the three qualifying spots after shooting a 2-under-par 142 (72-70) in this week’s event. Enoch finished four shots behind leader Ashton Turner and one behind Oliver Wilson, who also both qualified. Click here to view Enoch’s scorecard.
Enoch has played in the Open once before in 2014 at Royal Liverpool, after coming through qualifying at Woburn.
"I played The Open at Hoylake in 2014 and missed the cut by three shots but it was probably the best week of my life so I can't wait to get back and try again,” said Enoch. "It's an unbelievable event and it can't come soon enough. I haven't played Carnoustie, but I'm know it's one of the toughest around."
Enoch played for ETSU from 2007-2012 and earned an individual berth to the NCAA Championship in 2010 after sharing medalist honors in the NCAA Regional. Enoch was the 2008 Atlantic Sun Freshman of the Year and four-time all-conference performer.
