Just edged out Emiliano Grillo for the last of 12 Open places awarded on June 30 to non-exempt players off the world rankings.
Qualified for the 2009 U.S. Open as an amateur and later the same season represented his country in the Walker Cup at Merion.
Rickie Fowler and Brian Harman were among his team-mates and Tommy Fleetwood was part of the Britain and Ireland side as Tringale recorded an 8&6 win over Luke Goddard, the third-biggest margin of victory over 18 holes of singles in the event’s history.
A student at Georgia Tech, he also played that year in the annual Arnold Palmer Cup college match against Europe and was unbeaten.
On turning professional in 2009 he instantly gained a PGA Tour card at the qualifying school, but so far has had to settle for three runner-up finishes on the circuit.
He ended up two behind Hunter Mahan at the 2014 Barclays, one adrift of Justin Rose in the 2015 Zurich Classic and was pipped again by Smylie Kaufman at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open later the same year. He did, though, taste success with Jason Day at the unofficial Franklin Templeton Shoot-out in 2014.
