Scott Stallings is headed overseas next weekend. The Knoxville resident qualified for the British Open on Sunday.
He can thank Lefty for the opening.
Stallings received the berth after Phil Mickelson won the Scottish Open. Mickelson, who was already qualified, opened the spot for Stallings and the first non-exempt alternate.
This will be the first British Open Championship for Stallings.
The first round of tournament play begins Thursday at Muirfield in Scotland.
