U.S. Open: Silvers gets his break - Bob Spear, The State
"I'm still on Cloud Nine," Silvers said two days after securing his berth in this week's Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links.
He earned his spot the hard way, winning a sudden-death playoff on the second hole in sectional qualifying in Roswell, Ga. Considering a couple of near-misses since turning pro a year ago, producing under pressure made this achievement more satisfying.
"I was very fortunate to have received a scholarship to South Carolina and I was just one of those people where I seemed to be getting better every year," Silvers said. "My fundamentals, my mindset, everything kept improving. Once I had my senior year I looked back from my freshman year to see just how much better I'd gotten. I feel if I keep progressing that way I have a really good shot at playing some good golf professionally."
