In the past 24 hours, Brooks Koepka has won on the Challenge Tour, secured his European Tour card and, now, clinched a spot at this year’s British Open.

The former Florida State All-American earned medalist honors Monday during International Final Qualifying at Sunningdale. He shot a 36-hole total of 5-under 134 to pace the field and earn one of the nine available spots.

Also heading to the July 18-21 British Open at Muirfield: Oliver Fisher, Gregory Bourdy, Richard McEvoy, Gareth Maybin, Alvaro Quiros, Niclas Fasth and Scott Jamieson.

Ross Fisher, Alejandro Canizares, Estanislao Goya and David Drysdale played off for the final available spot, with Goya prevailing on the second extra hole.
