A number of LIV golfers will be competing in the U.S. Open after winning major championships.
The 84-player field for the US Open, announced by the United States Golf Association (USGA) today, includes 11 LIV players. Brooks Koepka (USA), who won his second major PGA Championship of the season on Feb. 22, is joined by Bryson DeChambeau (USA), Dustin Johnson (USA), Martin Kaymer (Germany), Phil Mickelson (USA), Cameron Smith (Australia), Joaquin Niemann (Chile), Abram Ancer (Mexico), Thomas Pieters (Belgium), Mito Pereira (Chile), and Patrick Reed (USA). Koepka is a two-time U.S. Open champion, while Johnson and DeChambeau also hold the trophy.
Tiger Woods (USA), a three-time U.S. Open winner, is a surprise omission. Woods, who was involved in a serious car accident in February 2021, underwent surgery on March 20 to treat inflammation in his right ankle. This is the same area that was injured in the accident. He is expected to take eight to 12 weeks to recover from the surgery.
Woods made the cut at the Masters, the first major of the season, but withdrew after the third round. He will skip the PGA Championship and the U.S. Open. He is also unlikely to play in The Open in July.스포츠토토
