Parry OMalley Earn US Open Exemptions


Craig Parry and Peter O'Malley, currently the two leading golfers on the PGA Tour of Australasia, have earned exemptions into the upcoming U.S. Open because of their money earnings and world ranking as of March 18.
The USGA offers an exemption from having to qualify for the U.S. Open to the top two money-leaders on the PGA Tour of Australasia as of March 18 provided they are in the top 75 of the official World Rankings at that time.
The U.S. Open will be played from June 13-16 on the Black Course at Bethpage (N.Y.) State Park, a golf course owned by the public. The USGA will also offer exemptions to all golfers in the top 50 of the World Rankings at the end of May.
Parry, who finished tied for 48th at the Bay Hill Invitaional in Orlando, Fla., is the current money-leader on the PGA Tour of Australasia and ranked No. 75 in the world. O'Malley jumped into the second spot on the Order of Merit by winning the inaugural Holden Clearwater Classic in New Zealand. He is ranked No. 65 in the world.
