Emiliano Grillo

Emiliano Grillo
Climbing into the world’s top 50 earned him a first Open start at Royal Troon in 2016 and he returned at Royal Birkdale after qualifying for the PGA Tour’s season-ending Tour Championship.

Climbing into the world’s top 50 earned him a first Open start at Royal Troon in 2016 and he returned at Royal Birkdale after qualifying for the PGA Tour’s season-ending Tour Championship.

Grillo was then at Carnoustie in 2018, following his appearance in the previous year’s Presidents Cup, and he also made the field for Royal Portrush off the world rankings a month before the Championship.

Having just missed out on a place via his ranking this year, he was called in as a reserve when Sungjae Im withdrew on July 2.

Grillo almost won the 2014 Omega Dubai Desert Classic, making a 65-foot eagle putt on the last after his approach over the lake had clattered into a hospitality tent and rebounded onto the green, but Stephen Gallacher pipped him by one.

After ending that year with a six-stroke victory at the Argentina Open he received an invitation to the PGA Tour’s Puerto Rico Open and made it into a five-way play-off before losing to Alex Cejka.

He then won the Web.com Tour Championship to qualify for the main circuit, becoming their 2016 Rookie of the Year after winning his very first event as a member, the Frys.com Open.
