It’s called Golf Longest Day and for good reason too.
Just under 900 players competed for 64 spots in the 2023 US Open field on June 5, over 36 holes at 10 different venues across America and Canada.
A number of players from the PGA Tour, LIV Golf, and amateur ranks tried their arm for major glory and, as per usual, there was plenty of drama.
Qualifying for the US Open is often a brutal day, but it is worth it for those who secure a spot at Los Angeles Country Club.
LACC will become a US Open golf course for the first time this month and only the RBC Canadian Open is left on the PGA Tour before the best players head to California.
From an incredible up-and-down to one-handed chips and a certain PGA Tour winner carrying for his friend, we will take you through the results at each site and the highlights of the day.
