One of the joys of golf's US Open is that, technically speaking, any golfer in America has a chance to participate. The tournament has various a host of qualifying tournaments that allow amateurs, as well as recreational players with a handicap no greater than 1.4, to try and play their way into the field. The first round of those qualifying tournaments, dubbed as "local qualifying," took place in mid-May, and now the process is at the "sectional qualifying" stage, where the top players from the local qualifying tournaments compete in one of 11 tournaments to advance to the US Open proper.
One of those 11 sectional qualifiers takes place on Monday, June 4 at the Village Links of Glen Ellyn, in Glen Ellyn, Ill in suburban Chicago. It will feature the top players from local qualifiers across the midwest participating in a one-day, 36-hole tournament. The number of players that will advance from the qualifier, and the 10 other across the country, will be determined, according to the USGA, by the field's "numbers and strength."
