Simon Khan bounced back from losing the BMW PGA Championship in a playoff by qualifying for the U.S. Open on Monday. The Englishman, who lost a four-hole playoff to Matteo Manassero at Wentworth on Sunday, qualified in first place by shooting a 5-under 67 on the Old Course and 2-under 70 on the New Course. A playoff was needed to settle some of the 12 spots available for the June 12-16 tournament at Merion Golf Club. Khan has reached the U.S. Open three times in eight straight years of qualifying. Former Ryder Cup player Paul Casey of England and Jaco Van Zyl of South Africa are also through to the second major of the year.
