Johannessen Sets Course Record


On Monday, Tennessee signee Kristian Johannessen set a course record (63) in the Open Regional Qualifying at Bruntsfield Links (Scotland).

The Norwegian amateur is now a step closer to playing in next month's Open Championship. En route to his record breaking score of 63, Johannessen connected on five consecutive birdies (13th - 17th hole).

"I came over just for the chance -- I had never been to Edinburgh before, so it was nice to visit," said a thrilled Johannessen.

He became one of 134 successful players at 13 courses in England, Scotland and Ireland who now go through to the 36-hole Final Qualifying next Tuesday at Gailes Links, Hillside, Sunningdale New and Woburn.
