Road to Shinnecock: 2018 U.S. Open qualifying sites announced

The USGA has released its list of the 112 local qualifying sites for the 2018 U.S. Open.

The 18-hole qualifiers will be contested across 45 states (apologies to Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, North Dakota, and Mississippi) and Canada between April 30 and May 17. Florida (15) and California (14) have the most qualifiers of any state.

Local qualifiers will advance to 12 one-day, 36-hole sectional qualifiers to take place June 4 — except for the Japan sectional, which is set for May 21.

If history is any indication, local qualifying will attract in the neighborhood of 10,000 applicants. Last year saw 9,485 entries, just shy of the 2014 record of 10,127. Qualifiers must be professionals or have a Handicap Index under 1.4.

Last year, 21 players advanced to the U.S. Open through open qualifying.
