U.S. Open Local has 67 players
67 players will compete for four qualifying spots into the sectional round of the 2018 U.S. Open Championship on Monday, May 14th at Glen Oaks Country Club in West Des Moines. Players will play 18 holes at Glen Oaks, while the four who move on to the sectional round will play 36 more to try and qualify for the field at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, New York.
Glen Oaks Country Club will host the U.S. Open Local qualifier for the first time since 2002, but they are no stranger to hosting USGA qualifying events. They hosted the USGA Amateur Four-Ball qualifying in 2015, U.S. Amateur qualifying in 2005 and 2013 and U.S. Mid-Amateur qualifying in 2004 and 2009. They also hosted the Iowa Amateur in 2011.
