The former University of Alabama All-American will make his second U.S. Open start, and first as a professional, after advancing from the Springfield (Ohio) Country Club final qualifier. Shelton was a member of the 2015 USA Walker Cup Team. He also represented the U.SA on a pair of Palmer Cup Teams in 2014 and 2015. As an amateur, he finished third in the 2015 Barbasol Championship in Mississippi, which was the best finish by an amateur since Phil Mickelson's triumph in Tucson, Ariz., in 1991. After turning pro in 2016, Shelton finished second on the PGA Tour Canada's money list to earn a promotion to the Web.com Tour (now Korn Ferry Tour). Two of his four professional victories came within a two-week period in May 2019 on the Web.com Tour: the Knoxville Open and Nashville Golf Open. He currently is a member of the PGA Tour.
