Adam Scott’s record run of 91 consecutive major appearances looks set to end after he flunked the US Open qualification play-offs. Having participated in every major tournament since the 2001 Open Championship, the Australian has the longest current streak of men’s major appearances, but he still needs to qualify for the US Open this season.

After shooting rounds of 67 and 69 to go seven under par, he lost to fellow countryman Cam Davis in the play-offs. As a result, he dropped to first alternate and might miss playing at the Pinehurst Resort & Country Club (Course No. 2) altogether.

However, Scott has one more chance to receive an exemption because players ranked in the top 60 of the Official World Golf Ranking as of June 10 will receive an invitation to play if they are still not eligible. Scott is currently ranked at exactly No. 60. 

Qualifiers for the third major of the year 

The third major of the year, which is scheduled to take place in North Carolina, will be held from June 13 to 16. In all, 672 players participated in 36-hole qualifiers across Canada and the USA in an attempt to secure one of the 44 slots available for the competition. 

Among the golfers who qualified for the competition and earned their spots are Webb Simpson, the 2012 US Open champion, and PGA Tour veteran Matt Kuchar.
