In the upcoming US Open at Pinehurst No. 2, Aussie golfer Jason Scrivener is feeling confident that an Australian player will come out on top, drawing inspiration from the Anzac spirit that helped Michael Campbell secure the title almost two decades ago. Scrivener, a late inclusion in the tournament, has been studying past US Opens at Pinehurst to prepare for the challenge ahead. His qualification for the event at Walton Heath in England has him reflecting on Campbell’s victory over Tiger Woods after arriving at final qualifying as world No. 80.

Scrivener’s anticipation for the tournament is evident as he believes the course at Pinehurst suits Australian players, requiring precision and smart golf rather than just power. Joining him in the tournament are other Australian contenders like Cameron Smith, Min Woo Lee, Cam Davis, Jason Day, and Adam Scott. Scott, in particular, is set to make his 92nd consecutive major championship appearance, a remarkable feat that has earned him admiration from his peers on the tour.

As the Australian players gear up for the US Open, their tee times for the first round have been scheduled. Cameron Smith will be among the early starters, followed by Min Woo Lee and Cam Davis. Scrivener, Day, and Scott will tee off later in the afternoon wave, with Scott’s impressive streak of major championship appearances drawing praise and awe from fellow players like Billy Horschel.

The stage is set for the Australian contingent to make their mark at the US Open, with Scrivener leading the charge with his determination to channel the spirit of past champions like Campbell. As the tournament unfolds at Pinehurst, golf fans will be eagerly watching to see if an Aussie can replicate Campbell’s historic victory and etch their name in the annals of golfing greatness.
