First, let's check in with some players who tried to qualify for a trio of majors yesterday.

Alison Walshe made it to the U.S. Women's Open.

@Walsheyyy Excited to say I qualified for another US open! Cant wait to get to Kohler!

Bob Estes found his way into the British Open.

@BobEstesPGA Thanks everybody! This will be my 13th @The_Open(Championship). Very much looking forward to it but still upset about the years I missed!

Michael Putnam fell a bit shy of making the field at Royal Lytham and St. Annes.

@Michael__Putnam Well, shot 66-67 in a 36 hole qualifier for the British open and still didn't make it.... #theseguysaregood

John Peterson won his local qualifier in an attempt to get into the U.S. Open, then didn't get the site he wanted for the sectional.

@JohnPetersonLSU @usopengolf Shoot 63 and win locals by 4, so naturally the USGA doesn't send me to my first sectional choice. Just adding fuel to the fire.

Then there's Harris English, who went 60-63 to win the International qualifier for the British Open.

@Harris_English Had a awesome time playing with @kkraft11 today for 36. Pumped about playing my first major @The_Open!

Needless to say, some fellow pros, like Rickie Fowler and Steve Wheatcroft, noticed.

@RickieFowlerPGA Sounds like you played good today @Harris_English...123 isn't bad...for 18 yes but 36 that's just insane!!

@WheatiePGA 123 (-17 for 36 holes) Hang in there @Harris_English, the putts will start falling soon. Try to keep that confidence up. ha! #sillylow

Finally, a pair of players enjoyed a homecoming of sorts.

@ThePCreamer Grocery store time! So excited that means I am home for awhile!!! #littlethingsinlife

@JasonDufner Hey everyone I'm back up and running on Twitter. Thanks for your support the past 3 weeks. Been a blast!!
