Khan receives late call-up for US Open

BRITAIN'S Simon Khan has been invited to play in next week's US Open.

A place became available to last month's PGA champion at Wentworth because countryman Justin Rose, winner of last week's Memorial Tournament in Ohio, had not won a PGA Tour event during the previous 12 months.

Two spots in the US Open at Pebble Beach, California were held open for any player who won multiple PGA Tour co-sponsored events in that time period. Khan failed to qualify for the US Open but finished as first alternate.
