States Golf Association (USGA) today
announced local qualifying
sites for the 2013 U.S. Open

over 18 holes at 111 sites, will take place
May 3-16 in 43 states.
“The U.S. Open’s local and sectional
qualifying process exemplifies a
commitment by the state and
regional associations and we are grateful
for their support,” said USGA Vice
President and Championship
Committee Chairman Thomas J. O’Toole Jr.
“U.S. Open qualifying remains unique and
democratic in that every
amateur golfer who meets the Handicap
Index requirement can compete. Local
qualifying is where the quest to
play in our National Championship
Those players successful in local qualifiers
will advance to sectional qualifying, which
will be conducted over 36

ninth consecutive year, Japan and England
will host international
qualifying, both scheduled for May 27.
In 2013, six clubs are hosting U.S. Open
local qualifying for at least the 10th

the U.S. Open, the most since 1997.
Langley, who qualified locally at
The Legacy Golf and Tennis Club, in Port
St. Lucie, Fla., and Hossler, who advanced
through a local qualifier at
Oakmont Country Club, in Glendale, Calif.,
