Five days after losing a playoff in Columbus, Ohio, in a qualifier, Scott is in position to get a spot from the world rankings to play at Pinehurst No.2 and extend his major streak to 92.

The top 60 in the ranking get starts at Pinehurst in the major that begins on Thursday (early Friday AEST).

Although Scott, a member at Brisbane’s Royal Queensland Golf Club,  was expected to drop from 60th to 61st in the rankings this week, he would still get in at No.61 because the late Grayson Murray is still ranked.

Murray, who died by suicide on May 25, was No. 61 this week, and given the rolling two-year formula, he could climb back into the top 60.
