The last time the U.S. Open was at Pinehurst No. 2, Martin Kaymer won it. Ten years later, Kaymer is returning to the Donald Ross design as a member of LIV Golf, one of 13 qualifiers from the league.

Five of them, like Kaymer, are U.S. Open champs. While Kaymer won in 2014 (and is playing on the final year of his 10-year exemption), there’s also Dustin Johnson (2016), Brooks Koepka (2017, 2018), Bryson DeChambeau (2020) and Jon Rahm (2021).

Up until Monday, there were only a dozen LIV players in the U.S. Open field, but Sergio Garcia snagged one of the final qualifying spots as an alternate.

Garcia, the 2017 Masters champion, lost a seven-way playoff for six spots at his Dallas qualifier, pushing him into the alternate category. But the strength of that site helped his case, allowing him to secure an alternate spot when one became available. He’ll now make his 25th consecutive U.S. Open start, which is tied for the 10th most all time.

Scroll below for a complete list of LIV players in the U.S. Open field, along with how they qualified. (Eds. note: Several players qualified via more than one criteria.)
