Scott Stallings in 2013 U.S. Open as Roger Chapman withdraws



Scott Stallings fell short of qualifying for the 2013 U.S. Open on Monday in Memphis, but the two-time PGA Tour winner found himself a spot at Merion on Tuesday.

U.S. Senior Open champion Roger Chapman withdrew from the tournament on Tuesday, citing a shoulder injury. Stallings, first alternate out of Memphis after becoming the odd man out from a 3-for-2 playoff, will take his place.

Stallings tweeted his happiness on Tuesday night.

This will be Stallings' fourth major appearance. He finished T-27 at the 2012 Masters, but has missed the cut in the last two PGA Championships.
