OC Alum Gibson Qualifies For British Open

This year’s British Open will have a little OC flavor to it. Alumnus Rhein Gibson (08) qualified with a fourth-place finish at the Australian Open. 

He finished the tournament at 9-under, nine shots behind the winner, Rory McIlroy, and eight behind runner-up Adam Scott. Scott won the 2013 Masters while McIlroy won the 2011 U.S. Open and the 2012 PGA Championship. 

“It means the world to me to play in my first major championship. That’s what we all want to do – to play majors – and I’m grateful for the opportunity,” Gibson said.
