Four amateurs made the cut at the 122nd U.S Open: Here’s where they finished

BROOKLINE, Mass. — One of the many great things about the U.S. Open, if you’re good enough, is that you can earn your way into the field. In total, 15 amateurs earned their way to the tee Thursday at The Country Club, with four of them making the weekend. It’s the first time in three years any amateurs made the cut.

Travis Vick, Sam Bennett, Austin Greaser, and Stewart Hagestad did what several of the biggest names in golf couldn’t: earn Saturday and Sunday tee times.

In total, five amateurs have won the U.S. Open, with the last coming in 1933 (John Goodman, North Shore Country Club).

Here’s where the four amateurs who made the weekend in Brookline finished.

Greaser finished runner-up to James Piot at the 2021 U.S. Amateur at Oakmont Country Club, earning him a spot in this week’s field. A final round 79 sent him tumbling down the leaderboard.
