Casey Martin given sponsor’s exemption into PGA Tour’s Vegas event


Casey Martin will get a second start on the PGA Tour this year.

The University of Oregon head men's golf coach has been given a sponsor's exemption into the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Martin qualified for and competed in the U.S. Open in June, finishing a shot off of making the cut at The Olympic Club. It was his first PGA Tour start since the 2005 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
