Brandel Chamblee and Gary Koch qualify for Senior Open

Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee is stepping away from the TV cameras.

Chamblee left Sunday after doing his thing on Golf Channel and headed to Scotscraig Golf Club where he shot a 2-under 69 to qualify for the Senior Open.

Per Golf Channel:

Chamblee started on the back nine and overcame an opening bogey by playing a five-hole stretch in 5 under highlighted by an eagle on the par-5 14th. He bogeyed four of his final seven holes coming home, but a birdie on No. 9 tied him for the day’s low score with American John Inman and amateur Robert Maxfield of England.

After his round, Chamblee had this to say about the state of his game.

“My game’s pretty good. When I’ve played, I’ve played some really good golf,” Chamblee said. “I’m looking forward to it for a lot of different reasons. I want to try to get back into competitive golf, and I would love to have another week at St. Andrews.”

This is the first PGA Tour Champions event that Chamblee will play in, but it doesn’t sound like it’ll be the last.

Also qualifying for the Senior Open is Gary Kock. Koch shot a 3-under 68 in a qualifier at Lundin to gain entry into the event.
