With just two weeks remaining in the Olympic qualifying process, this week’s U.S. Open at Torrey Pines will help solidify tickets to Tokyo for many players.

The only country with the maximum of four men's players currently in position to qualify is the U.S., which has four top-15 players projected to make its team with five other top-15 players with a chance still to play their way onto the American team.

Great Britain, South Africa, South Africa, South Korea and Japan are the other nations with more than two top-100 players in the world rankings, though those nations will only get two representatives. England has three top-20 players.

The final 60-player field will be finalized June 28.
