US Open 2022: Here’s everyone who has qualified to compete at The Country Club in Brookline

By Jay Coffin
The US Open field is starting to fill itself in as the 122nd playing of the championship, held June 16-19 at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, draws closer. The last time the US Open was at the famed club was in 1988, when Curtis Strange defeated Nick Faldo in an 18-hole playoff to win his first of consecutive US Open titles.

Of course, The Country Club also hosted the 1999 Ryder Cup, when the United States made its historic comeback from a 10-6 deficit entering Sunday singles to defeat Europe, 14.5-13.5. Among other big events, the course also hosted the 2013 US Amateur (won by Matt Fitzpatrick), the 1995 US Women’s Amateur (won by Kelli Kuehne) and two other US Opens — the historic 1913 event when 20-year-old amateur Francis Ouimet defeated Harry Vardon and Ted Ray in a playoff — and the 1963 edition, where Julius Boros beat Arnold Palmer and Jacky Cupit in a playoff.

A year ago at Torrey Pines, Jon Rahm captured his first major championship when he made birdie on the 17th and 18th holes to shoot 67 and overcome a three-shot deficit to win the US Open. He defeated Louis Oosthuizen by one and Harris English by three.

In April, the USGA announced 48 golfers were fully exempt into this year’s championship, including 12 past US Open winners. On May 23, 30 more players were added to the field, many thanks to being ranked inside the top 60 of the Official World Golf Ranking. Among those on that list were Will Zalatoris, Adam Scott and Mito Pereira, who took a one-shot lead into the 72nd hole at the PGA Championship and made double bogey to tie for third place. His disappointing finish, however, moved him up 51 positions in the World Ranking and earned him a US Open exemption.

There remain a handful of ways for players to still earn a spot into the field at Brookline. Nine venues host 36-hole final qualifying events on June 6. (Two Final Qualifiers have already been played, with 12 players proudly earning spots, see below).

In addition, the top 10 aggregate point earners, who are otherwise not exempt, in the four-event US Open 2022 European Qualifying Series (British Masters, Soudal Open, Dutch Open and European Open) will earn places in the US Open. Any multiple winners of PGA Tour events that award a full-point allocation for the season-ending Tour Championship also earn an exemption, as do any golfers who are in the OWGR top 60 as of June 6 and have not otherwise qualified.

Here is a list of the all the players who have qualified for the US Open field so far.
