The United States Golf Association (USGA) today announced tee times for the first two rounds of the 2024 U.S. Senior Open Championship, Thursday (June 27) and Friday (June 28), at 7,024-yard, par-70 Newport (R.I.) Country Club.

The U.S. Senior Open is a 72-hole, stroke-play competition. A field of 156 players will play 18 holes of stroke play on June 27 and 28, after which the field will be reduced to the low 60 scores and ties. Those players making the cut will play 18 holes on June 29 and 30.

If there is a tie upon the completion of 72 holes, a two-hole aggregate playoff will immediately follow. If this playoff results in a tie, the tied players will immediately continue to playoff hole-by-hole until the winner is determined.

Here are the tee times for the 19 amateurs in the field, including Bob Royak, the No. 1 player in the AmateurGolf.com Senior Rankings.
