Us Open, a special ranking for ten places

For the second consecutive year and again due to the difficulties - due to Covid - of guaranteeing qualifications in Europe, the USGA has established that ten places to qualify for the US Open in golf, scheduled from 17 to 20 June in Torrey Pines, California, will arrive through a special ranking that will cover a series of events of the greatest continental circuit.

Us Open, how to qualify

This time, the 10 places will no longer be guaranteed by the "UK Swing" - as happened in 2020 - but by the British Masters (May 12-15 in England), the Made in HimmerLand (May 27-30 in Denmark) and the Porsche European ( 3-6 June in Germany).

Qualifiers for the US Open will take place regularly at 109 venues across the US and Canada from April 26 to May 18. The third Top 10 of the season (eighth at The Genesis Invitational in California) gives Francesco Molinari the 85th position (with 1.5827 points) in the world ranking of men's golf.

The blue, 107° on the eve of The Genesis, is thus among the top 100 players. The king is always Dustin Johnson. The American, in the lead with 12.6631, precedes the Spaniard Jon Rahm (second with 9.2690). After The Genesis the first six positions remained unchanged.

While Patrick Cantlay (now seventh with 6.5804) relegated Rory McIlroy to eighth place (6.4597), who came out at the cut in the PGA Tour tournament. It is the only variation among the top 12 finishers. While he will soon drop out of the Top 50 Tiger Woods, from 48° to 50° (2.1775), he hopes to return in April for The Masters after the new back operation.

Great escalation for Max Homa. The American, winner of The Genesis (second title on the PGA Tour), jumped from 91° to 38° position (2.7545). 1 1 1 USA Dustin Johnson 12.6631 519.19 41 -59.48 71.86 41
