SANTA ANA PUEBLO – Albuquerque’s D.J. Brigman is a step closer to his fourth U.S. Open appearance after firing a 4-under 68 on a brutally windy Monday at Twin Warriors Golf Club. Brigman had the day’s best score and grabbed one of three available spots in the local qualifier – one of 111 around the world.
CROMWELL, Conn. — D.J. Brigman has a long way to go to get in contention here at the Travelers Championship, but may have provided the shot of the day with a hole-in-one on the 150-yard 11th hole with a 9-iron.
Lists “Top Gun” as his favorite movie and considered accepting an appointment to the Air Force Academy. “Based on commitments after graduation, I knew it would hamper my golf game—flying F-16s and then trying to find time to practice.”.
Biggest thrill in golf was making a 15-foot putt at the Web.com Tour Championship in 2003 to secure his PGA TOUR card.
Favorite golf course is Pebble Beach GL. Would most like to play St. Andrews. First car was a Jeep Cherokee.
Favorite professional team is the Dallas Cowboys.
