Evan Barbin’s 1-Under 69 Earns Medalist at Philadelphia Open Qualifier

PLYMOUTH MEETING, PA, June 17, 2021 — Evan Barbin shoots 1-under par 69 to finish first in the field of 130 amateur and professional golfers at the Philadelphia Open Championship Qualifier at the 1912 Club. Evan was the only player in the field with an under par round.

This is Evan’s second major qualifying medal of the summer – after finishing on top at the BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship Qualifier at Running Deer Golf Club on May 22nd.

“After a 1-under 69 performance at The 1912 Club (par 70, 6,655 yards) Wednesday in the first of three GAP Open Championship Qualifying events, now Barbin has a pair of GAP medals — and a second chance at the ultimate Major hardware.

“All I was trying to do was make birdies and avoid doubles. I just told myself to hit the center of greens,” said Barbin.

A clean second side of 2-under par checks both of those goals off the list. Barbin’s first birdie of the day arrived on the par-4, 413-yard 11th. A 3-wood off the tee, and over the pond, left him with just a pitching wedge in. He landed that approach on the left fringe near a sprinkler head, took relief, and chipped in for 3. His second and final red digit on No. 15 (par 4, 347 yards) came after an overdrawn 3-wood landed left, but a 60-yard lob wedge approach landed within 10 feet and was drained. Three pars coming in resulted in the 1-under finish.

“It was one of those days where I had a ton of good looks at birdie. I missed a few short ones, maybe three five-footers in a row,” said Barbin. “I hit the ball really solid overall.”
