For Many, Dreams Come True At U.S. Open Sectional Qualifying

It’s commonly referred to as the longest day in golf, but at the the end of the day Monday, the day will be remembered as the one of the greatest days of their lives for many golfers.

Today is the 36-hole sectional qualifier for the U.S. Open at Erin Hills. PGA Tour pros will tee it up alongside amateurs, fellow pros, and average Joes who made it through local qualifying over 10 sites in hopes of making it to the season’s second major.

As is tradition every year, the three deepest fields for sectional qualifying are the two located in Ohio (near this past week’s Memorial tournament) and the qualifier in Memphis, Tennessee (home of this week’s FedEx St Jude Classic). Those three locations are traditionally deep enough that the USGA could award World Ranking points.

Other Sectional Qualifying locations are in California, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, Texas and Washington.

The U.S. Open is being held this year at Erin Hills at Erin, Wisconsin, June 15-18. For score updates from all 10 Sectional Qualifying sites throughout the day, click here.
