The USGA announced their U.S. Open Local Qualifier Spots on Tuesday, meaning the road to Erin Hills is officially underway!
114 qualifiers will take place in 44 different states from May 2-18 and, for the first time ever, a qualifier will be held in Canada at Ontario’s Beacon Hall Golf Club. Local qualifiers will be 18-hole events and open to anyone with a USGA handicap index of 1.4 or lower. Orville Moody (1969) was the last player to win the U.S. Open after advancing through local qualifying.
There are 16 local qualifying sites in the state of Florida, the most of any state. Fourteen local qualifiers are scheduled in California, while Texas will host seven local qualifiers.
In 2016, 9,877 tried to qualify for the championship at Oakmont. The record of 10,127 entrants for the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst still hold up to this day.
