Nine Players Qualify for US Open at Walton Heath

Nine players have successfully qualified at Walton Heath for next month’s US Open at Pinehurst, with an exciting mix of experienced and up-and-coming golfers set to compete on the prestigious stage.

The list of qualifiers includes well-known names like Robert Rock, Tom McKibbin, Matteo Manassero, Edoardo Molinari, Richard Mansell, Brandon Robinson Thompson, Grant Forest, Sam Bairstow, and Jason Scrivener.

47-year-old Robert Rock stands out among the qualifiers, making a return to the US Open after 12 years. Despite retiring from professional golf, Rock impressed with a stellar performance, shooting nine under par over his 36 holes.

Young talent Tom McKibbin from Northern Ireland will be playing in his first major championship at just 21 years old. He will bring with him fond memories of Pinehurst, where he won the World Kids Championship as a 12-year-old back in 2015.

Italian players Matteo Manassero and Edoardo Molinari will also be joining the competition, each with their own unique stories of triumph and resurgence in the game.

The trio of British players, Mansell, Thompson, and Forrest, led the way in qualifying with an impressive score of 10 under over their two rounds at Walton Heath. This will mark their debut at the US Open, adding a new dynamic to the field.

With Pinehurst set to host the 124th US Open next month, the stage is set for an exciting tournament. The venue holds special significance for those who qualified at Walton Heath, as it was the same place where New Zealand’s Michael Campbell clinched victory in the 2005 US Open after qualifying at the Surrey club.

As the countdown to the US Open continues, golfing fans can look forward to witnessing these talented players in action and cheering on their favorites to win the third men’s major of the year. Live coverage will be available on Sky Sports, starting from June 13th. Make sure not to miss this thrilling event in the world of golf.
