Brett Quigley Earns Exemption into 2024 U.S. Senior Open at Newport
With his fourth place finish at this week’s U.S. Senior Open, Rhode Island’s Brett Quigley has earned an exemption into next year’s Senior Open at Newport Country Club.
Quigley carded a final round 66 to climb nine spots up the leaderboard and finish in a tie for fourth with Rob Labritz.
“That’s special, Rhode Island loves golf. Newport Country Club first open, first amateur there, really cool stuff. I know that they are excited for that championship and I am too,” said Quigley after the round.
He added, “I get goosebumps just thinking about it. The clubhouse, the property, I know the history behind it. And the golf course, it’s just a beautiful walk.”
While Quigley is in, Billy Andrade finished in a tie for 27th and will have to qualify again next year.
Brad Adamonis will have to do the same after a 56th place finish.
Bernhard Longer won the 2023 U.S. Senior Open with a score of seven-under par.
