Israelson, who is the pro-fessional at The Vintage in Staples, was on the alter-nates list after tying for 36th at a qualifying tournament. He gradually made his way up the line and Saturday he received word that he made the field after Tom Watson withdrew.

Israelson will open his tournament 12:20 p.m. Thursday (CDT) and will be paired with Tom Lehman and Olin Browne. The same threesome will begin its second round 7:10 a.m. (CDT) on Friday.
