The U.S. Open is 2 weeks away. It will be played at Shinnecock Hills in New York, the site of Corey Pavin’s one major.

Meanwhile, this past Monday and Tuesday, there were 10 qualifiers around the country. There were plenty of big names trying to qualify, along with all those other golfers who dream to play the U.S Open. Some did, others didn’t. But what’s striking about the qualifiers is that you may increase your chances dramatically by playing in one of the less popular sites. Hawaii, Oregon, and Pennsylvania had only 1 spot but less competition. Columbus, OH, appeared to be the worst site, with the most PGA tour players there (following the Memorial) trying to qualify. How would you like to be teeing up against Aaron Baddeley, Mark Calcavecchia, Alex Cejka, or Duffy Waldorf?
