The field for A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier is officially set.

Four qualifying spots were earned Monday at an open qualifier on the Cobb Course at The Resort at Glade Springs. Steve Allan birdied seven holes on the day to come away with the top score at 6-under 65.

The annual tournament will begin Thursday on the Old White TPC at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs.

The second spot went to Shintaro Ban (5-under). Andrew Novak, Conrad Shindler, Troy Kennedy, Chip McDaniel and Parker Mclachlin all finished at 3-under to force a five-man playoff for the final two openings. Novak and Shindler came out and will play at The Greenbrier later this week.

A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier will serve as the opener for the 2019-2020 PGA Tour. This is the event's first time being held in September after being a July event every year since its inception in 2010.

Golfers will be playing practice rounds throughout the day Tuesday. A host of events commemorating Sept. 11 will be held Wednesday, as well as the official Wednesday Pro-Am with flights at 7 a.m. and noon.
