CINK, TRINGALE SET FOR U.S. OPEN

Georgia Tech has two representatives in the U.S. Open this week – Stewart Cink, who is exempt after qualifying for the 2021 Tour Championship, and Cameron Tringale, who is in as one of the top 60 players in the official World Golf Ranking. The third major championship of 2022 begins Thursday at The Country Club at Brookline near Boston, Mass.

Cink (read his U.S. Open history here), whose best finish in the U.S. Open was third place in 2001, will make his 22nd start after tying for 57th place last June at Torrey Pines in San Diego. Tringale (U.S. Open history) is competing for the third time after tying for 54th in 2015 at Chambers Bay and missing the cut in 2009 at Bethpage Black.

Neither played last weekend in preparation for this week. Vincent Whaley tied for 35th at the RBC Canadian Open (277, -3) and moved up to 114th in FedEx Cup points, while Seth Reeves missed the cut.

HALEY EARNS THIRD TOP-10 KORN FERRY FINISH

Anders Albertson and Paul Haley II both posted top-10 finishes last weekend at the BMW Charity Pro-Am and continued to solidify their chances to earn PGA Tour cards with seven regular-season events remaining on the Korn Ferry Tour schedule.

Haley tied for seventh place, his fourth top-10 finish of the season, with an 18-under-par score of 267, six shots off the lead, anchored by a 63 in Saturday’s third round. The 2011 ACC Champion moved up to No. 13 on the points list for the tour. Albertson, who won the Visit Knoxville Open two weeks ago to position himself for a top-25 points finish, tied for 10th place with a 17-under-par 268, and sits No. 11 on the points list.

Haley enters the weekend as the favorite at the Wichita Open, having scored 46-under-par in his last three events, with five of 12 rounds at 65 or better.

Chris Petefish and J.T. Griffin, each of whom have conditional status on the Korn Ferry Tour, missed the cut. Petefish sits No. 73 on the points list and had a third-place finish three weeks ago at the NV5 Invitational.
