Australian amateur golfer Stubbs wins AAC, qualifies for Masters, The Open

Australian amateur golfer Jasper Stubbs has qualified for both the Masters and The Open men’s golf majors in one fell swoop.

Stubbs shot a four-round total of 1-under-par 285 on the final day of the Asia Pacific Amateur Championship (AAC) at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club (par-71) in Melbourne, Australia, on Monday to tie with Ding Wonyi and Zheng Yuehe (China) and force a playoff. They were unable to reach a decision on the first playoff, and Stubbs won the second playoff with a par.

The tournament, co-organized by Augusta National Golf Club, which hosts the Masters, the R&A, which hosts the Open, and the Asia-Pacific Golf Confederation (APGC), gives the winner a spot in the following year’s Masters and Open.짱구카지노
