The 124th US Open is just around the corner.

And as the championship returns to Pinehurst No.2, storylines are aplenty once again.

Three-time champion Tiger Woods will make his return to the USGA’s showpiece event after he was granted a special exemption.

Wyndham Clark was an unlikely winner 12 months ago, but he’ll head to Pinehurst as one of nine past champions.

It’s an open field in every sense of the word with 156 players set to compete over four testing days.

And some of the last spots on offer were snatched at final qualifying, so here is the 2024 US Open field as it stands…

Field correct as of June 10, 2024. Note: (a) denotes amateur.
