Brooks Koepka capped off a big week by qualifying for the British Open.

Koepka had rounds of 69-65 at Sunningdale to get one of nine spots Monday in International Finals Qualifying for Europe. The 23-year-old American had the low score just one day after winning his third Challenge Tour event to earn an instant promotion to the European Tour.

The next seven spots went to Oliver Fisher, Gregory Bourdy, Richard McEvoy, Alvaro Quiros, Gareth Mabyin, Niclas Fasth and Scott Jamieson. Estanislao Goya of Argentina earned the last spot in a playoff against three others, making par on the second extra hole. Goya also made it into the U.S. Open through a European qualifier.

The British Open is July 18-21 at Muirfield.
