Today golf amateur and professional father, husband and roofing salesman Mike Finster qualified for his THIRD STRAIGHT US Senior Open, to be held June 29-July 2 at Salem Country Club in Peabody, Mass. Adding to his legend and Cinderella story, Mike shot 68 and was medalist in a qualifying tournament at Adena Golf and Country Club near Ocala. His round, one of only four in red numbers, included 6 birdies and 2 bogies on the tough quarry course. Here’s a birdie and crowd reaction:
After the round, his gallery of rogues and ner-do-wells gathered to await word (I could not get off work).
But the scoreboard said it all:
And Mike with his official invite, of which he is now building a collection:
Congrats to Mike, his wife Marybeth, caddy/friend English Mike and the entire Finster family and team.
