The USGA officially kicked off the chase for its most prestigious trophy with the announcement Tuesday of local qualifying sites for the 2015 U.S. Open.
A total of 111 qualifiers will be played in 43 different states from May 4-21, followed by a series of 12 sectional qualifiers. The U.S. Open will be held June 18-21 at Chambers Bay in University Place, Wash.
Last year 24 players made the field at Pinehurst No. 2 after starting in the local stage of qualifying, and Orville Moody remains the last player to win the season's second major after advancing through both local and sectional qualifying, having done so in 1969.
