After Victor Perez (world top 60 on May 22) and Matthieu Pavon (qualified at Walton Heath (England) on May 16 after 36 holes during the day), it's Romain Langasque's turn to validate his ticket for the 123rd US Open in history programmed for the first time since 1948 at the Los Angeles Country Club.
Romain Langasque, results
The Azurean, tenth at the Porsche European Open thanks to a final 68 (-5), indeed finished among the first two non-exempts of the qualification series (over four tournaments) started at the beginning of May at the Italian Open and which ended this Sunday in Hamburg (Germany).
He will take part in his second US Open after Winged Foot (New York) in September 2020, won by American Bryson DeChambeau. Victorious a few weeks earlier at the Wales Open, Romain Langasque had taken 34th place in the final.
In the midst of a pandemic. "A little more than a month ago, it was not even in my plans," he said on the official website of the French Golf Federation.

“I will most certainly play the BMW International Open in Munich (June 22-25), he explained to the FFG. By qualifying for the US Open, there is a good chance that I will qualify for The Open (via the top 20 of the Race).
In this case, my schedule in July will be articulated between Denmark, Scottish and the British Open. If I don't qualify for The Open, I will do British Masters, Denmark and Scottish before being off for four or five weeks. »
