Auburn Golfer Jovan Rebula Set for US Open After a Week of Practice with his Uncle, Ernie Els
AUBURN SENIOR JOVAN REBULA IS SET TO TEE IT UP AT PEBBLE BEACH GOLF LINKS FOR THE US OPEN
Auburn Senior golfer Jovan Rebula will be playing in his second major tournament of the year this week.
He’s teeing it up in the US Open as an Amateur. Helping him navigate Pebble Beach Golf Links is his uncle, two-time US Open Champion, Ernie Els.
“We’ve played everyday so far this week. It’s been really special to have a family member out here that you can play with that you know so well. He has had an incredible career and he’s won two of these events so that’s truly special,” Says Rebula. “I’ve been picking his brain a little bit that past couple of days and that’s been very helpful.”
Rebula’s first round tee time is slated for 10:29 pm Eastern time with former Auburn golfer’s Patton Kizzire and Jason Dufner.
