US Open Qualifier at Walton Heath in Tour Talk Posted May 26, 2015 [quote name='Santiago Golf' timestamp='1432649175' post='11627976'] Some of these guys are Club pros and some are euro players. They got to go work next day. Wether its in a pro shop or practice round for a tournament. If I was out of it and had tournament that same week, I would bounce [/quote] None of these players are club pros. They are all top tier tour pros. The qualifying at Walton Heath is the only venue for qualification within Europe and is only open to players who are members of the European Tour who are not otherwise exempt. You are right in that the vast majority of them are playing in the Irish Open hosted by Rory McIlroy this week and this qualification took away a day's preparation time from this event on the European Tour. Many of them traveled straight to Royal County Down following play at Walton Heath. Also this qualification is the day after the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth - so after a week of tough competition, when they know they are out of the running for a qualification spot, they probably just want to move on (whether that's right or wrong).
