Monday qualifiers: Greenbrier Classic

By Michael Curet, PGATOUR.COM Contributor

Dan Obremski, a former Coastal Carolina golfer, not only played his way in to his first start on the PGA TOUR at this week's The Greenbrier Classic, but did so in record-setting fashion.

The 26-year-old Pittsburgh native broke the Cobb Course record at Glade Springs with a 9-under 62 in the Monday qualifier. The previous mark was a 64 shot by Rod Pampling (2011) and Dick Mast (2010).

Ryan Zylstra, a Canadian who now lives in Richmond and was a spectactor at the last two Greenbrier Classics, shot 64 to earn the second spot. Zylstra, 33, who played golf at Virginia Commonwealth, recently got the competitive urge back after caddying for a friend, Ted Brown, on the Web.com Tour.

Ryan Blaum and Brad Adamonis beat out Jamie Lovemark in a playoff for the other two qualifying spots after all shot 65s. Blaum and Adamonis parred the first extra hole while Lovemark made bogey.

Last month, Blaum, a 29-year-old former Duke golfer, won the Dominican Republic Open on the NEC Series PGA Tour Latinoamerica, where he ranks sixth on the Order of Merit. This week at the Greenbrier, Blaum is playing his first PGA TOUR event since 2009 and the fourth of his career.

Adamonis, a 40-year-old Rhode Islander, missed his only PGA TOUR cut of the season earlier this year the Farmers Insurance Open. Adamonis finished runner-up in the John Deere Classic (2008) in his first full year on PGA TOUR and posted two other top-10 finishes. He also had another top-10 the following season before losing his TOUR card.
