U.S. Open qualifying announced! Here’s every site for 2022 U.S. Open, U.S. Women’s Open
It might be Groundhog Day, but an announcement from the USGA Wednesday morning immediately turned February 2nd into the most optimistic day on the golf schedule. That’s right, dreamers: U.S. Open qualifying is here! That means you can take the next step in your dream of making it to the U.S. Open (at The Country Club, June 16-19) or the U.S. Women’s Open (at Pine Needles, June 2-5).
On the men’s side, 18-hole local qualifiers will take place from April 25th through May 17th, while 36-hole Final Qualifying will happen May 23rd and June 6th. Any player with a handicap index of 1.4 or better can enter; the number of prospective qualifiers regularly approaches 10,000, with an all-time record of 10,127 for the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst.
About half the field at a typical U.S. Open comes from open qualifying, though many of those qualifiers are exempt through the local stage. In 2019, more than 9,000 golfers signed up to try to play the championship at Pebble Beach, and 17 players who started at locals made it into the 156-player field, according to an email from the USGA. Of those 17, four players made the 36-hole cut. Ken Venturi (1964) and Orville Moody (1969) are the only golfers to win the U.S. Open after qualifying through both local and final play.
To be eligible for qualifying, a player must have a handicap index of 1.4 or below or be a professional. Online player registration for the 2022 U.S. Open will begin the week of February 21 at champs.usga.org. Entries close April 13th.
On the women’s side, 36-hole qualifiers will be held at 22 U.S. courses between April 26 and May 13.
A record 1,873 women attempted to qualify for the 2015 U.S. Women’s Open at Lancaster Country Club. Since open qualifying began in 1976, two qualifiers have gone on to win the championship: Hilary Lunke in 2003 at Pumpkin Ridge and Birdie Kim in 2005 at Cherry Hills.
To be eligible, a player must have a handicap index of 2.4 or below or be a professional. Online entry applications open on Feb. 17 and continues through April 14 at champs.usga.org. Entries close April 6th.
