Who’s in the field so far? How do golfers qualify?

The U.S. Open has a field of 156 and more than half of the spots have already been claimed.

There are now officially 83 fully exempt golfers in the field, so the window is narrowing for those hoping to punch their ticket. Another 23 earned their spots at one of three qualifying sites on Monday.

The 2024 U.S. Open will played at venerable Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina, the fourth time the course has hosted the national championship. No. 2 is the No. 1 ranked course on Golfweek’s top public-access courses in North Carolina.

Prior to Monday, there were 52 spots already taken, including one by defending champion Wyndham Clark and another by Tiger Woods, who received a special exemption. Then on Monday, another 31 golfers got in, 22 by virtue of their standing in the latest Official World Golf Ranking.

83 golfers are fully exempt as of May 20
