Kevin Streelman had an eventful Monday, shooting a six-under 66 to win the Rockford (Ill.) Pro-Am at Aldeen Golf Club. The way more significant news came later, though, when Streelman found out that he had gotten into The Open next week at Royal Portrush.

Are you kidding me? That’s the kind of note you get from your buddy telling you their fourth can’t make it and asking if you want to fill in down at the local muny—except this wasn’t some Saturday game (or even the Rockford Pro-Am) but The Open Championship. At Portrush.

The answer was, of course, yes. It will be Streelman’s fifth career appearance in the Open Championship and his first since 2015. His best finish was a T-54 at Royal Liverpool in 2014.

Daly’s decision to play in the Barbasol instead of the Open is likely due to him being denied use of a cart at Royal Portrush. He’ll be allowed to use one at the Barbasol, most likely.
