Qualifying will return for the 121st U.S. Open. The USGA announced on Wednesday 109 local qualifying sites for the championship, which will take place June 17-20 at Torrey Pines South outside San Diego, California.
The USGA canceled qualifying last year because of the coronavirus pandemic and established an all-exempt field at Winged Foot. There were 9.125 entrants into local qualifying for the 2019 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. The record is 10,217 for the 2014 edition at Pinehurst No. 2.
Local qualifying is conducted over 18 holes, taking place April 26-May 18 in 43 U.S. states and Canada.
Players who advance out of local qualifying will join a group of locally exempt players in final qualifying, which will be conducted over 36 holes. Dates and courses will be announced in February.
