“Only three spots available when T.J. is in the field,” said the tweet after T.J. Vogel qualified for the Greenbriar, a record-breaking 7th time this season. Vogel, who has won more than $110,000 on the PGA TOUR this season all through Monday qualifying action, will be in action this Monday, July 16, at the Barbasol Championship Open Qualifier which will be held at Boones Trace National Golf Club in Richmond.

Four spots in the Barbasol Championship field will be awarded with those players advancing to play at Champions at Keene Trace this week, July 19-22.

“No doubt he’s the Monday maestro,” said Brooks Downing, Executive Director of the Barbasol Championship. “Four players are going to earn what could be life-changing opportunities to join the PGA TOUR. We can’t wait to see whom will be joining us at Champions.”

Vogel attempted his eighth qualifier last Monday at the John Deere using rental clubs after an airlines lost his clubs. He shot 4-under but didn’t qualify. He’ll battle against the likes of future-pro Ashton Van Horne from Georgetown, who played collegiately at Belmont and is a member at Keene Trace Golf Club and Blake Watts, the 2017 KPGA Section Champ from Louisville who serves as the head professional at Wildwood Country Club.  The first tee time is at 8 a.m. and the field features 52 players.
