Jaco Van Zyl will tee it up in his first U.S. Open at Merion this week.
Van Zyl had a stint on the PGA TOUR in 2007 as a fully-exempt member via Q School, but has since focused his efforts elsewhere. It's worked out well, as he currently sits 85th in the Official World Golf Ranking thanks in large part to three wins in his last five starts in Africa. He picked up his seat at the table this week via a T2 at the Sectional Qualifier in Surrey, England. Mon, Jun 10, 2013 09:40:00 PM

Jaco Van Zyl polished off a one-stroke victory at the Dimension Data Pro-Am on the Sunshine Tour with a 2-under-par 35-35=70.

The South African completed 72 holes over three tracks at Montagu Golf Course in Fancourt in 17-under 272. England's Daniel Brooks, who also closed with a 70, was the runner-up at 16-under 273. Hennie Otto, who shared the 36- and 54-hole leads with Van Zyl, came home in 73 to finish in a four-way tie for third place at 14-under 275. This tournament is the flagship event on its circuit, so the champion is awarded with a berth into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in August. Although he was a PGA TOUR member in 2007, Van Zyl will be making his debut at Firestone.

Jaco Van Zyl has earned a spot in the World Golf Championships–HSBC Champions to be contested at Mission Hills Golf Club Olazábal Course in China.

Van Zyl may be mildly familiar to fans that follow the PGA TOUR, as he had a brief stint on the circuit in 2007 after sneaking through Q School on the number. The South African is known mainly for his success on his native Sunshine Tour, where he boasts 10 wins. In 2012, he’s notched six top 10s worldwide, and enters this week 171st in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Jaco Van Zyl shot a 65 Friday and stands at -8 after two rounds of the South African Airways Open.

Van Zyl gained a bit of notariety at this year's PGA Tour School when he knocked in a testy eight-foot putt for 64 on the final hole of the final round to graduate on the number. As he has his 2007 tour card, he may be a real sleeper for fantasy golf owners in the coming season.....64 on the last day of Q School is no small deal.
