The road to the U.S. Open field is a long one --- especially for amateurs. For those that took the long route and made it through local and sectional qualifying, they knew what was on the line. For others, who qualified on merits of recent and past performances, the road to those events was surely as arduous.

When the full field takes the tee June 13-16 at Merion Golf Club, 10 amateurs will be among them. Here's a look at the amateurs in the field along with how they qualified:

Steven Fox - Reigning U.S. Amateur Champion
