Adam Scott’s incredible Major Championship streak appears to be over, while the UAE’s No.1 professional golfer Joshua Grenville-Wood and Dubai-born Josh Hill fell short at U.S. Open Final Qualifying.


‘Golf’s Longest Day’ was held yesterday, with 10 locations across North America hosting 687 players who competed for the final 44 available spots in the field at this this month’s U.S. Open.


Grenville-Wood was after one of four spots available at Lake Merced Golf Club, but rounds of 71 and 74 saw the 26-year-old finish outside of the qualifiers, which was led by LIV Golf’s David Puig .


In Georgia, Hill, who is currently playing collegiate golf in the States, carded rounds of 68 and 70 at the Golf Club of Georgia, as his bid to secure a place in a first Major Championship came to an end.


Meanwhile, Scott looks set to end a run of 91 straight Major Championship starts after falling agonizingly short in a play-off against Cam Davis in the Springfield, Ohio, qualifier.


The Australian chipped-in for birdie on the first play-off hole, but Davis answered with a birdie of his own. Two holes later, the contest was settled after Davis went flag hunting, sticking his approach right by the cup to set himself up for a winning birdie.


Unless he gets in as an alternate, Scott will now miss his first Major Championship since he missed the U.S. Open in 2001.


Other notable names to come through Final Qualifying include LIV Golf’s Dean Burmester, former U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson and nine-time PGA Tour winner Matt Kuchar.
