The projected Olympic standings experienced a bit of a reshuffle following the U.S. Open.

With only three weeks left to qualify for the 60-man field in Rio de Janeiro, Gregory Bourdy made the biggest climb after a T-18 finish at Oakmont. Bourdy, who briefly challenged the course record during the second round, rose 15 spots to No. 111 in the world, supplanting Alexander Levy for the second and final spot on the French team.

Other changes included Australia's Scott Hend, who leapfrogged Marcus Fraser for the second spot representing Australia alongside world No. 1 Jason Day.

The July 11 world rankings, which precede the Open Championship, will be used to finalize the field. Countries are allowed up to two representatives, with that max raised to four if all are ranked inside the OWGR top 15.
