Who’s in the field for the 2024 US Open golf championship?

Published

on

World No. 1 and reigning Masters champion Scottie Scheffler leads the field as the 124th U.S. Open golf championship gets underway Thursday at North Carolina’s Pinehurst Resort.

A total of 156 players will tee it up with more than half of the field made up of golfers who have received automatic spots based on their world ranking, a previous tournament victory, their place in various tour standings or a special exemption.

Fifteen-time major champion Tiger Woods is in the last category after getting the official invite from the USGA last month.

The rest of the field is comprised of players who have made it through the rigorous annual qualifying process.

When is the US Open golf tournament?

The U.S. Open will be June 13-16, 2024, at the historic No. 2 course at Pinehurst Resort and C.C.

Is Tiger Woods playing in the US Open?

After finishing last in the Masters and missing the cut at the PGA Championship, Tiger Woods will be in search of his 16th major title when he tees it up at this year’s U.S. Open thanks to a special exemption from the USGA.

It will mark the first time since 2020 that Woods will be playing in the U.S. Open, a tournament he’s won three times previously.

While the PGA Championship and Masters offer lifetime exemptions to past champions, the U.S. Open does not. Woods is currently No. 829 in the Offical World Golf Ranking, and a five-year exemption from his 2019 Masters victory has run out.
