156 players will compete in the 150th Open Championship at St. Andrews in 2022.

Leishman was in a similar situation when he took the first tee at St. Andrews in 2015.

While Jason Day was in contention for his maiden major at the time and Adam Scott had a troubled past at The Open, there was little speculation of his possibilities in Australian circles, let alone in those of the rest of the globe.
By the time Leishman left for his third round, he was completely off the grid rather than just flying under the radar.

The 31-year-old entered the weekend one shot under the cut line of even-par 144 after opening rounds of 70 and 73 and nine shots behind leader Dustin Johnson.

He then significantly changed the course of the tournament by shooting an amazing eight-under round, which propelled him into unexpected contentionon the final day.

Leishman started the fourth round with seven birdies in the opening 12 holes, continuing his torrid streak.

Leishman is still hurt by what happened in the hours that followed.
Leishman pushed his approach shot into the sixteenth hole's green, but he missed a five-foot par-saving putt, bringing his score back to 15-under.

Both the American Zach Johnson and the South African Louis Oosthuizen eventually tied that score, forcing them into a four-hole playoff with the Australian.

Leishman experienced the harsh break of having his shot land in a fairway divot on the opening playoff hole. Leishman recorded a bogey, leaving him two strokes down and all but out of the competition while Johnson and Oosthuizen both recorded birdies.
Leishman settled for a tie for second, but everything on and off the course continued to look promising for the future.
Due to an unusual instance of toxic shock and sepsis, Leishman's wife Audrey had just a 5% chance of surviving just a few months previously.

Leishman was about to give up golf completely in order to raise their two children when Audrey miraculously awoke from an induced coma.

Given how close I came to winning, Leishman told Australian Golf Digest in St. Andrews, "I do occasionally worry about it."
"It was a week of what might have been, but when I consider how fortunate I was to be on a golf course, I typically feel better.

"I was going to stop playing golf to take care of the kids when the doctors said Audrey might not survive. For me, it was a very strange or bittersweet week.
