North Augusta native (and current Aiken resident) Scott Brown is playing well in the Travelers Championship which could earn him a spot in The Open Championship next month at St. Andrews in Scotland.
Brown followed up a first round 65 with a second round 67 at the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, CT. He had a stretch of 6 straight birdies on his back nine Friday. As of 4:30 on Friday, Brown was tied for 2nd place. The top 4 finishers in the Travelers (not already exempt) will earn a spot in The Open Championship (aka the British Open).
Brown has made 3 starts in majors. He missed the cut in both the PGA Championship and Open Championship in 2013 and finished tied for 46th in the PGA in 2014.
Bubba Watson leads at the Travelers Championship at 11-under.
