Scobee set to try and qualify for the U.S. Open

Sounds like Jags kicker Josh Scobee is hoping if the NFL isn’t for him long term, golfing might just be. Reports say that Scobee, who is a scratch golfer, is trying to qualify for the U.S. Open.

Scobee will tee off next Monday at Timuquana Country Club in Jacksonville for the first round of qualifying for the U.S. Open. Depending on the number of entrants, Scobee has to finish in the top five or top three to advance to sectional qualifying.

Scobee says he expects butterflies in his first tournament, especially since he didn’t play high school or college golf. Scobee, who wants a golf job once his NFL career is over, has played several times the last few weeks in hopes of honing his game.

Coach Jack Del Rio offered some advice Monday, saying, “Hit it straight, and when he comes to kick field goals, kick those straight. That’s what I’m looking for.”
