In the qualifying round, there was the field of 120-strong players, out of which 14 was to be selected for the tournament. The qualifying match took place at the Brookside and Lakes courses which is located in Columbus.
After the two rounds, the score of Donald was five under, he was three shots short of to reach the cut mark, and this means that he will sit out the second major of the year, to be played in Wisconsin at Erin Hills.
Golfer who made their way to the championship is Scot Martin Laird he carded a pair of 67s to finish on 10, on the other hand former champion of the major Stewart Cink and Keegan Bradley also made their way to the championship.
One who finished in the top position is the former player of Ryder Cup, Steve Stricker, he made it through his section of the Ridgeway and Germantown Country Club, and he scored the total of 132.
After the end of the tournament, Luke Donald twitted and blamed the long course to be responsible for his lost in the game. In his tweet, he said, “The major problem with the course that is long is that, it takes long to play with it.”
In his tweet many has shown the favor as this is one of the big problems that Golf is facing these days. However, some who made the cut out in the event, consider this as an excuse of Luke Donald and say this is not a problem.
