By now I’m sure everybody knows the story of Richie Ramsay’s US Open qualification snafu. He left the qualifying event early trying to attend a wedding reception. As it turns out he missed the flight to the reception, but was too far away from the course to make it back for the playoff he surprisingly qualified for. Really a double bummer day for the Scot.
Well, he was still the first alternate in England, and when the USGA gave out two extra qualifying spots to England and Japan this week it turns out Richie will be at Congressional after all.
Richie handled the initial disappointment bravely, and it’s good to see golf karma coming back his way this quickly.
Keep’em in the short stuff.
