With the US Open fast approaching, plenty of LIV Golf stars have taken up their final chance to play in the third major of the season.

Final Qualifying for this year’s showpiece at Pinehurst No.2 will take place at various sites on Monday June 3, four days before LIV returns after a month-long break for its next event in Houston.

And while ten players on the Saudi-backed circuit have already punched their ticket to the famed North Carolina layout, 18 more will aim to join them in what is regarded as “Golf’s Longest Day.”

The 36-hole shootout on Monday takes place across ten different courses in North America, five of which will be occupied by LIV players.

The most significant names still looking to qualify include major champions Graeme McDowell and Charl Schwartzel. McDowell’s ten-year past champion exemption for his win at Pebble Beach back in 2010 has long since expired.

Meanwhile, Joaquin Niemann, the form player on the LIV circuit this season, is hoping to force his way into his third straight major after securing invites to both the Masters and the PGA Championship.

But the Chilean will face some still competition at The Bear’s Club, the Florida qualifying site where eight of his LIV colleagues will also tee it up.

The LIV players already in the field for this year’s US Open include Jon Rahm, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, Martin Kaymer, Phil Mickelson, Cam Smith, Adrian Meronk and Tyrrell Hatton.
