The U.S. Golf Association has announced its local qualifying sites for the 2015 U.S. Open Championship, to be played at Chambers Bay in University Place, Wash. Local qualifying consists of 18 holes, and the USGA will stage 111 such qualifiers in 43 states. They will take place from May 4-21, and players who advance from locals earn a spot in one of 10 sectional qualifying sites around the U.S.
“U.S. Open local qualifying represents the start of an exciting two-tiered process in which thousands of golfers from around the world, both professional and amateur, pursue a place in this year’s field at Chambers Bay and the opportunity to compete for our national championship,” said Diana Murphy, USGA vice president and Championship Committee chairman. “U.S. Open qualifying is conducted with the support and expertise provided by state and regional golf associations, and we appreciate their effort and commitment.”
In 2014, the USGA accepted a record 10,127 entries for the championship at Pinehurst No. 2, in the Village of Pinehurst, N.C. That total eclipsed the 9,860 for the 2013 championship at Merion Golf Club, in Ardmore, Pa.
A player is eligible if he has a Handicap Index that does not exceed 1.4, or if he is a professional.
