DANIELS, W.Va. - The look on his face spoke volumes.
Daniel Obremski was walking off the par-3 No. 13 green when somebody asked him how he was playing.
The answer was evident in his expression.
The former Coastal Carolina University player shot a Cobb Course record 9-under 62 during the Greenbrier Classic Open Qualifier Monday at The Resort at Glade Springs' Cobb Course.
In 2010, Dick Mast shot an 8-under 64 when the course was set up as a par 72. In 2011, Rod Pampling - who is on the PGA Tour - shot a 64.
This time, No. 2 was changed from a par 5 to a par 4, making the course a par 71 at 6,969 yards - the first time the course played at less than 7,000 yards in its four years of hosting Classic qualifiers.
Obremski was joined by Ryan Zylstra (7-under 64) and Ryan Blaum and Brad Adamonis, both of whom won in a one-hole playoff with Jamie Lovemark.
Shortly after signing his card, Obremski was at something of a loss.
"I've done so many qualifiers that I didn't make it through, I'm used to packing up and trying to be positive," Obremski said. "I'm definitely going to be positive, but I don't know what to do. I'm definitely going to call my dad. He's going to be pretty pumped."
After shooting a 74 in the pre-qualifier on Thursday, Obremski said his mind was in a good place, in terms of handling the mental side of the game. He walked off No. 13 after playing four-hole stretch at 5-under par, finishing with a birdie on the par-4 No. 10, a birdie on the par-4 No. 11, an eagle on the par-5 No. 12 and a birdie on 13.
As he made the turn, Obremski knew something special was happening.
"I would say halfway through," he said. "I had 90 yards into 9, I hit a wedge and from the front I hit a great shot and it rolled all the way to the back.
"That was the first green I missed, but I got up and down with ease. At that moment I knew I was under control for the day."
He had a chance to go to 10-under with birdie opportunities on No. 17 and No. 18, but two-putted.
When he left the No. 18 green, Obremski was pondering what it meant to earn a spot in the Greenbrier Classic after multiple attempts to Monday qualify at various PGA and Web.com tour events, but falling short.
