Spaun is set to make his U.S. Open debut after sharing medalist honors in the Hilton Head, S.C., final qualifier conducted at Long Cove Club. The Los Angeles native attended San Diego State, where he was a two-time All-Mountain West Conference selection, and the 2012 MWC Player of the Year. He also was a second-team All-American in 2012. He played his first three professional seasons on PGA Tour Canada and when he finished among the top 3 on the circuit's Order of Merit in 2015 that included one victory, he earned his first start on the PGA Tour (RBC Canadian Open). In 2016 he won the News Sentinel Open on the Web.com Tour (now Korn Ferry Tour), which locked up his PGA Tour card for 2017.
