Three punch tickets to Open Championship


WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. – Three more players punched tickets to the Open Championship on Sunday, including both of the playoff competitors at The Greenbrier Classic.

Marc Leishman, who won the Travelers Championship two weeks ago, was joined atop a mini-money list by Greenbrier champion Ted Potter, Jr. That money list runs from The Players Championship through the Greenbrier.

Meanwhile, runner-up Troy Kelly also earned a trip to Royal Lytham & St. Annes via a qualifying rule which sends the highest finisher in the top-five who isn’t already exempt.

Leishman finished T-60 in his only previous Open Championship appearance two years ago. Neither Potter nor Kelly has ever competed in the year’s third major.

The Open Championship will take place July 19-22.
