The Granada, Spain, native accomplished an enormous feat in his young career by qualifying for the 2016 Open Championship at historic Royal Troon. Fernandez’ chance to compete on the world’s stage was attained by finishing second at a final stage qualifier at the Gailes Links Club in Scotland on Tuesday.
Iowa State All-American golfer and graduate, Scott Fernandez established himself as one of the greatest golfers in Cyclone history during his record-setting career from 2012-15.
His 2012-13 campaign is still the greatest single-season effort in the history of Iowa State golf. He was named second-team All-American (Golfweek and CGAA), All-Big 12 First-Team and was awarded Iowa State’s Male Athlete of the Year. He became the first Cyclone to make the Ben Hogan Award watch list. In 2014, he helped the Cyclones qualify for their first NCAA finals appearance in 53 years.
