Eight places in the Open Championship are up for grabs in Texas on Monday - and making it through would bring back two very happy memories for England's Greg Owen.
When Royal Lytham last staged the event in 2001 Owen made an albatross two at the long 11th and had the thrill of leading for a while.
"It was real shivers down the spine stuff," said the Mansfield golfer, who in the end had to settle for a share of 23rd place.
Former British Masters champion Owen has been based in America for most of the time since and now finds himself amongst 78 players taking part in the 36-hole qualifier at the Gleneagles Country Club in Plano.
Londoner Brian Davis is in the field too, trying to repeat his success on the course last year. He led after a six under par 64 in an event cut to one round because of bad weather.
Swede Henrik Stenson, whose three-year Open exemption for winning the Players Championship has run out, is another trying to make it into a tournament where he finished joint third in both 2008 at Royal Birkdale and 2010 at St Andrews.
