Dunne awarded place at US Amateurs
04 Aug 2015 14:02
Paul Dunne's eye-catching performance at the Open has earned him a place in the US Amateur Championship later this month.
The 22-year-old Greystones golfer, who began the final round at St Andrews in a share of the lead, has been given special exemption by the United States Golf Association for the 17-23 August event.
"Paul Dunne demonstrated his ability to compete with anyone by his outstanding play in the recent British Open at St Andrews," said Diana M Murphy of the USGA's Championship Committee.
"The USGA is pleased that he will be joining the strong international field of 312 players in the US Amateur, our oldest national championship, at Olympia Fields."
Contrary to previous reports, Dunne, who intends turning professional later this year, will not be competing in his first US PGA Championship at Whistling Straits next week.
