Jonesboro native Austin Cook added another milestone to his sensational season on the PGA Tour. The Razorback qualified for his 2nd major. Cook fired a 66 in the final round of A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. The 5th place finish punched his ticket to the 147th Open Championship.
The little kid from Jonesboro Arkansas is headed to Carnoustie! ?????????????? One of many God’s blessings this year. Really appreciative of The Greenbrier and my sponsors @PingTour @oakley who have supported me to reach my first @TheOpen Championship! pic.twitter.com/BdXHsfXSWm— Austin Cook (@austincookgolf) July 10, 2018
