US Open 2024: Who is in the field and how have players qualified for their major spot at Pinehurst No 2? | Golf News


Former major champions Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia will both continue their lengthy streaks of US Open appearances after being confirmed as late additions to complete the field at Pinehurst Resort & Country Club’s Course No. 2.

The USGA had already confirmed 150 of the 156-man line-up for this week’s major, live from Thursday on Sky Sports Golf, with Scott earning his place based on his world ranking and Garcia qualifying as one of four alternates from Final Qualifying.

Scott’s run of 91 consecutive major appearances was under threat after he lost out in a play-off to compatriot Cam Davis during Final Qualifying earlier this month, although gets in despite dropping from 60th to 61st in the latest Official World Golf Rankings.

The Australian becomes exempt via that top 60 category because world No 59 Grayson Murray has been removed from the qualification list after his death last month, meaning Scott will now compete in his 23rd consecutive US Open.

Robert MacIntyre is the other late addition based on his world ranking, having jumped inside the world’s top 50 with his breakthrough PGA Tour success at the RBC Canadian Open, with the Scotsman now set for his third US Open appearance.

Speaking on the Sky Sports Golf Podcast, Jamie Spence and Alex Perry were full of praise for Robert MacIntyre and his family after he picked up his first win on the PGA Tour

Garcia agonisingly missed out on progressing through Final Qualifying when he lost a seven-man play-off for six spots, although now gets his spot as the first alternate from that event in Dallas. The Spaniard will now make his 25th consecutive US Open start, which ties him for 10th on the all-time list.

The former Masters champion is one of 13 LIV Golf players now scheduled to tee it up in this week’s major field, while amateur Brendan Valdes, Otto Black and Maxwell Moldovan were the other alternates from Final Qualifying to be added to the US Open line-up.
