Suburban’s McCormick Headed to US Open

Combine Bruce Springsteen and Suburban Golf Club into a story, and you’ve got my attention.

Congrats go out to 49-year-old Mark McCormick, the head Pro at Suburban GC in Union, New Jersey, for qualifying for next week’s US Open. The drama of McCormick’s amazing moment from last week (in which he indirectly competed with his son) is a tale worth reading here. He’ll will tee off at 9:27AM Pacific time on Thursday at The Olympic Club. In case you aren’t familiar with my love for Suburban, here’s my review.

Making McCormick’s story even more compelling (as if it needed to be) is his caddy, 63-year-old Vini Lopez, who just happens to have been the former drummer for Bruce Springsteen. Read all about Lopez, Bruce, and Mark in this ESPN piece.
