Aberdeen golfer Gemma Dryburgh has earned a spot at next month’s US Women’s Open at Pine Needles.
The 28-year-old won her qualifier by a stroke to bag one of after finishing on six under par after rounds of 70 and 68 at Dunwoody Country Club in Atlanta.
American amateur Sara Im grabbed the other spot on offer after carding rounds of 70 and 69.
Dryburgh tweeted: “After 36 holes and two bogey-free rounds I qualified for my first US Women’s Open. I couldn’t be more excited to be playing at Pine Needles Golf Club next month.”
