"I have been playing quite solidly all year without really putting any low rounds together, said Allan. "I have had a couple of good finishes in One Asia events and then played well to qualify for a Nationwide Tour event recently and even though I missed the cut I felt like I played ok."
"It's just great to be here especially without a card to play anywhere it is fantastic to be playing in one of the big tournaments."
"In theory I am hoping to get starts in Nationwide Tour events by qualifying and hopefully get back on that Tour. I will head to Indonesia in two weeks time to play the One Asia Tour event there and then work out a schedule from there. I will probably continue to try and access the Nationwide Tour and play the One Asia events where I can."
Allan lives in Scottsdale and came over here to try and qualify for the Nationwide event. He took his chances on getting a start at the US Open via final qualifying in Columbine in Colorado. He finished tied for first there with one other and with only two spots available it was a huge effort.
"I love what I see here this week. Usual US Open, narrow fairways, thick rough and firm greens and it will be a great test but the kind of test I like."
