US Open 2022 Qualifying
In 1913, unheralded amateur Francis Ouimet won the US Open at the Country Club in Brookline. He was the first amateur, and just the second American to win the national open (John McDermott had won the previous two).
The 2022 US Open returns to the Country Club and registration for qualifying begins tomorrow (Feb. 23) and is open until April 13.
If you would like to try to replicate Ouimet’s feat, you’ll need a handicap of 1.4 or below, or be a professional (which seems to me to be a bit of a strange thing because most of the club professionals I know play less than enthusiastic amateurs. I suppose they must really mean playing pros.).
It is likely that some 10,000 will try to play into the championship.
To register, go to champs.usga.org. There you will also find a list of qualifying sites.
