QUINNEY QUALIFIES FOR FBR OPEN FIELD – OPENS SPONSOR’S EXEMPTION

PARKER McLACHLIN RECEIVES SPONSOR EXEMPTION

 

PHOENIX, Ariz. – 2007 FBR Open Tournament Chairman Pat McGinley announced today that Scottsdale-resident Parker McLachlin will receive an exemption into the 2007 FBR Open. This rare sixth exemption became available when McGinley’s third exemption, Jeff Quinney, qualified for the 2007 FBR Open on his own. 

McLachlin, 27, will make his second start on the 2007 PGA TOUR after tying for 59th at the Sony Open in Hawaii.  In 2006, McLachlin made two PGA TOUR starts, one at the Sony Open (missed cut) and one at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am where he tied for 38th. He also competed in 28 events on the Nationwide Tour in 2006, finishing 29th on the money list with a total of $176,882. He qualified for the 2007 PGA TOUR with a T16 finish at Q-School. From 1997 through 2002, McLachlin attended UCLA where he was a two-time All-Pac 10 selection.

At the time Quinney was given his exemption he was in the tournament field but it was believed he would be bumped as players with higher priority rankings committed to play. Seven of those higher-priority-ranked players withdrew from the tournament for various reasons, allowing Quinney to qualify on his own.  

McGinley and the tournament host Thunderbirds have extended all five sponsor’s exemptions for this week’s FBR Open at the TPC Scottsdale. In addition to McLachlin, other exemptions were given to John Daly, Lee Janzen, Alejandro Canizares and Anthony Kim.

The 2007 FBR Open will take place Jan. 29 – Feb. 4 at the TPC Scottsdale.  This year will mark the 72nd playing of the Open, making it one of the five oldest events on the PGA TOUR.  With more than 500,000 spectators each year, the FBR Open is the most attended tournament on the PGA TOUR. For information about the 2007 FBR Open, visit www.fbropen.com.
