US Open to severely update LIV Golf’s crucial qualifiers after 15 Rebels miss out

The US Open may introduce a qualifying system for players competing on the LIV Golf circuit after several members of the league missed out on qualifying for its third major championship this year.

In total, 17 LIV players entered final U.S. Open qualifying on Monday with ‘Golf’s Longest Day’ taking place across 10 venues in North America. Despite a large turnout from the breakaway league, only two of the 17 managed to bank their spots, with David Puig and Dean Burmester booking their trips to Pinehurst later this month. The breakaway league included former U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell, who missed the 36-hole event, but McDowell’s 10-year exemption from his 2010 win expired after his last appearance in 2020.

Elsewhere, LIV’s in-form star Joaquin Niemann is certain to miss his first major tournament this year after losing by one stroke in Florida and receiving invitations to the Masters and PGA Championship. The LIV player was forced to look at the choice of the league and continued their events without the official golf notation in the world.

In the context of not being aware of racks, four specialized fields are required to provide services to those who play in the series supported by Saudi Arabia, but action is required. Is not done. However, USGA Championships Director John Bodenhamer delivered some positive news on Monday. As a result, Bodenhamer confirmed that LIV’s possible U.S. Open appearance is on the table. He told Golf Channel:

You know, we’ve seen what’s going on in professional golf and we’ve seen a lot of good players move to LIV, so it’s something we think about a lot and we talk about it a lot. I think it’s reasonable to expect that at some point yes, we would create a pathway or someway that we would get those great players.

“Give them an opportunity to be unified again, we get a lot of them & there will be a lot that will play this week through exemption, a number of past champions and qualifiers so yeah, I think we’re looking very seriously at that.” In total 12 players from the breakaway league – including Burmester and Puig – will compete at Pinehurst No. 2 this month. One of the players competing will be Bryson DeChambeau, who won the National Open in 2020 and will return as a past champion. He could play in the U.S. Open through 2030, but the former PGA Tour star’s place in golf’s big three remains in jeopardy beyond 2025. DeChambeau himself advocated for independent exemption categories at all four Grand Slam tournaments last year. “A lot of ideas have been put forward,” DeChambeau said. “What we’re all working on right now, at least from my perspective and what I’ve heard so far, is creating an exemption category for LIV players based on their play throughout the year.

“Given the courses we own, our major champions and the elite level of play we see every week, this would be the fairest and most appropriate decision for LIV golfers. If we can do that then I think everything will be fine. As for the OWGR, it’s so low on the list that it’s very difficult to even be relevant. It’s part of their game and that’s fine. But I think there’s another path to the majors.”
