U.S. Open 2024: Here’s everyone who is in the field at Pinehurst (so far) – Australian Golf Digest

Two men’s majors down. Two more to go. After a thrilling finish at the PGA Championship, with Xander Schauffele claiming the Wanamaker Trophy with a 72nd-hole birdie to beat Bryson DeChambeau by a shot, next on the tee is the 2024 U.S. Open.

The USGA brings its marquee event back to Pinehurst No. 2 in June, the fourth time the famed Donald Ross course is hosting the national championship. The first came 25 years ago in 1999, when Payne Stewart won the U.S. Open for the second time in his career. In 2005, Michael Campbell pulled out the victory, and in 2014, Martin Kaymer dominated the field, winning by eight shots. Pinehurst has already been named site for the 2029, 2035, 2041 and 2047 U.S. Open along with several other USGA championships.

USGA officials proudly boast that the U.S. Open is the most democratic championship in golf. Any professional or amateur with a 0.4 handicap index can enter, with 10,052 doing so this year. And around half the spots in the 156-player field are earned via qualifying. The USGA just wrapped up the last of its 109 18-hole Local Qualifiers. All players advancing will then compete in 36-hole Final Qualifiers being held at 13 sites, 10 in the U.S., one in England, one in Canada and one in Japan.

The remainder of the field earned their places through 23 fully exempt categories. To date, 83 golfers are officially in the field, led by defending champion Wyndham Clark and Tiger Woods, who accepted a special exemption into the event earlier this month. In the next few weeks, more exempt spots will be filled. Any player in the top 60 of the Official World Golf Ranking as of June 11 who isn’t already qualified gets in. On May 27, the NCAA men’s D-I individual champion plays his way in.

Here’s the list of everybody who has qualified to compete in Pinehurst so far. We’ll continue to update this list as more of the fully exempt categories are filled.
