CINK, TRINGALE SET FOR U.S. OPEN

Georgia Tech has two representatives in the U.S. Open this week – Stewart Cink, who is exempt after qualifying for the 2021 Tour Championship, and Cameron Tringale, who is in as one of the top 60 players in the official World Golf Ranking. The third major championship of 2022 begins Thursday at The Country Club at Brookline near Boston, Mass.

Cink (read his U.S. Open history here), whose best finish in the U.S. Open was third place in 2001, will make his 22nd start after tying for 57th place last June at Torrey Pines in San Diego. Tringale (U.S. Open history) is competing for the third time after tying for 54th in 2015 at Chambers Bay and missing the cut in 2009 at Bethpage Black.

Neither played last weekend in preparation for this week. Vincent Whaley tied for 35th at the RBC Canadian Open (277, -3) and moved up to 114th in FedEx Cup points, while Seth Reeves missed the cut.
