"I was nervous, well excited, and I guess those two are pretty close, but I was three shots inside the number with 11 holes to play, I knew what I had to do, hit good shots to safe spots".

ADAM Scott's major championship streak is alive and rising star Lucas Herbert is also off to the US Open after both survived 36-hole qualifying events to secure their spot at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club.

The event consisted of 36 holes played in one day with Millar finishing seven shots behind the final qualifier Paul Waring.

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

Beachlands' Ryan Fox has added to his already successful weekend by qualifying for the 2018 US Open Championship at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club this morning.

"I'd like to make the most of this opportunity".

Ryan Fox has taken the same path into the US Open as 2005 victor Michael Campbell.




"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", said Fox.

Herbert now has starts at two majors this year having gained a start at the Open Championship via International Final Qualifying in Singapore earlier this year.

"It looks like a really cool place", said Schniederjans, who also played the 2015 British Open as an amateur. The USGA held back six spots for those who crack the top 60 in the world next week.

Among those who failed to qualify were Vijay Singh and 19-year-old Joaquin Niemann, who contended last week at the Memorial. The medalist was Sam Burns, who didn't have much stress after opening with a 62. Recent Tour victor Aaron Wise and Matt Jones made birdies to move on, while Eric Axley holed out for eagle from the rough to punch his ticket in what was easily the most exciting qualifier. The playoff included Christian DiMarco, the son of Chris DiMarco.

It will be Wilkinson's second US Open appearance after he finished tied for 61st two years ago at Oakmont Country Club.

Sebastian Munoz of Colombia had rounds of 67-69 to lead the four qualifiers at Woodmont.
