2014 U.S. Open Sectional Qualifying
Players who survive, or are exempt from, local qualifying will convene in this second and final stage for U.S. Open hopefuls. This year there are 12 sectional sites – 10 in the U.S., one in England, and one in Japan. The international qualifiers take place on May 26, while the U.S. qualifiers are on June 2.
Played over 36 holes in one day, sectional qualifying is a test of skill and endurance, with only a handful of available spots at each site – the number of qualifying spots is determined by the quality and quantity of the field at each location.
As during local qualifying, most of the sectional qualifying rounds in the U.S. are conducted by state and regional golf associations on behalf of the USGA.
