Less than 24 hours after the biggest win of his PGA Tour career, Norwegian world No. 5 Viktor Hovland said on Monday that his former college teammate is looking to qualify for next week’s US Open. I will act as a caddy.
Hobland won his fourth PGA Tour title, becoming the first on the continental United States, at the Jack Nicklaus Memorial Tournament on Sunday in Dublin, Ohio, before qualifying for a 36-hole qualifier in nearby Columbus on Monday. I was to serve as a caddy for Zach Baushu.
With Hovland on his back, Bausch was playing at Lakes Golf & Country Club and Brookside Golf & Country Club to make it through the final stages of US Open qualifiers.
Now it’s teammates!

Bowchow and Hovland were teammates on Oklahoma State University’s national championship winning team in 2018.
Hobland, who finished joint runner-up at last month’s PGA Championship, is set to make his fifth U.S. Open next week at the Los Angeles Country Club.
