(Golf) China's Liang debuts in US Open
(05-27 13:56)

China's Liang Wenchong and Shiv Kapur of India are set to make their US Open debuts next month after coming through sectional qualifying.
Liang, 35, topped the two-round qualifier in Nara, Japan, while Kapur won his berth by finishing fifth in a separate event in England.
Three-time Asian Tour winner Liang posted five-under-par 66 in his final round at Nara International Golf Club for nine-under-par 133, enough to win by a stroke.
Kiyoshi Miyazato, Lee Kyoung-Hoon and Toru Taniguchi were tied for second and Azuma Yano and David Oh, who were joint fifth, also earned tickets to the June 9-15 US Open at Pinehurst Resort.
Separately Kapur, who also played the British Open in 2006 and 2013, totaled 131 to place fifth at Walton Heath Golf Club and qualify for his third major tournament.
Further sectional qualifiers will be held in the United States on June 2. --AFP
