LIV Golf’s Sergio Garcia has qualified for the U.S. Open after competing in a regional qualifier.
Garcia finished tied for fourth place with a two-day total of 9-under-par 132 at the final US Open qualifier at Northwoods Club and Bent Tree Country Club in Dallas, Texas, on Thursday (July 24).
The U.S. Open is based on world ranking. However, Garcia’s move to LIV Golf, which is not eligible for world ranking points, dropped him to 먹튀검증 No. 206. The qualification marks the 24th consecutive year he has qualified for the U.S. Open.
Garcia competed in last month’s Masters as the winner of the 2017 event. The winner of the Masters receives lifetime eligibility. He did not play in the PGA Championship, which concluded on Nov. 21, breaking his 24-year streak of playing in all major championships.
Meanwhile, Graeme McDowell, who qualified for the US Open with LIV Golf, finished tied for 12th and did not qualify.
The U.S. Open will be held at the Los Angeles Country Club in Los Angeles, California, U.S., for four days next month, starting on April 16.
