With paperwork from marrying an American wife, Cameron Davis next week cannot attend the oldest major – The Open Championship.
Davis, after winning the Rocket Mortgage Classic on the PGA Tour last weekend, was on the reserve list for The Open 2021 from July 15-18 at Royal St. George’s in Sandwich, England.
But on July 8, the Organizing Committee – Royal & Ancient (R&A) – announced that player Kevin Na withdrew because of restrictions on movement during the epidemic season. Absent Na, Davis was promoted to the official status. However, the Australian golfer also missed the opportunity to compete at The Open for the second time in his career.
“After getting married in September 2020, I quickly applied for a green card – naturalization to get in and out of the US more convenient. But for the past six months, I could not leave the country due to unfinished documents. That’s the week. I have to quit The Open,” Davis explained on July 8.
The R&A only stated that the Australian golfer could not be present because “cannot leave the country”. He was replaced by Martin Kaymer from Germany. Kaymer was born in 1984, owns three PGA Tour championships and 11 European Tour Cups, including the major duo – PGA Championship 2010 and US Open 2014. Davis finished T39 in his first appearance at The Open, in 2018.
“Next week, if you don’t attend the major, let’s relax. I also look forward to meeting my wife and family in Seattle and regaining strength because this week has to be quite tiring,” Davis revealed his personal plan. He just finished the first round of the John Deere Classic on the PGA Tour in Silvis, Illinois. In the opening game, Davis scored four birdies, two bogeys and an eagle on a 67-stroke scorecard on par71. With a score of -4, he stood at T12 after 18 holes and the top of the table (-8) belonged to Sebastian Munoz and Chesson Hadley.
The PGA Tour on July 4 recorded Davis’ first victory after 71 attempts, at the Rocket Mortgage Classic after four standard rounds at -18 points and five extra holes.
|The Open Championship 2021 will be the 149th tournament of the tournament, with a prize fund of 11.5 million USD. Of the traditional major quartet, this is the oldest, R&A-owned and exclusively organized event. Last year’s tournament was canceled because of Covid-19. Therefore, Shane Lowry is still the defending champion since 2019. This year, Lowry received $ 1,935 million when he won at -15, with a six-stroke difference from runner-up Tommy Fleetwood.|
