    Scottie Scheffler won another golf tournament. This is not a glitch. You are not reading old copy. He emerged on Sunday with a one-stroke victory at the Memorial Tournament presented by Workday. You know it’s not an error because it’s his first PGA TOUR title in the month of June.

    You already know that Scheffler is exempt into everything and that his PGA TOUR membership extends through 2029, reflective of the five-year maximum, so he had no immediate impact as it concerns this page. Yet, the update needed to wait until Monday to give the USGA time to determine and announce the last entries into this week’s U.S. Open.

    The last automatic checkpoint was the top 60 in the latest Official World Golf Ranking, so it was a foregone conclusion that RBC Canadian Open champion Robert MacIntyre would qualify. He’s currently 41st, so he’s now officially in the major for the first time since 2021.

    A few days ago, the USGA announced that the late Grayson Murray would not be included among the eligible should he remain inside the bubble when the OWGR was employed. Indeed, he’s now 59th, so the USGA is looping in Adam Scott at 61st. The Aussie was the first alternate at final qualifying in Springfield, Ohio, on June 2. He has competed in every major since The Open Championship in 2001. Scott claimed his lone victory in the series at the 2013 Masters.

    The remaining four spots were filled by alternates at final qualifying. With Scott climbing into the field via the OWGR, Maxwell Moldovan rose to first alternate from the same site and now into the field of 156 at Pinehurst No. 2. Otto Black (Columbus, Ohio), Sergio Garcia (Texas) and Brendan Valdes (Florida) are the others.

    Although Scheffler continues to outdo himself, there was one golfer who secured an exemption into The Open Championship at Muirfield Village Golf Club – Adam Hadwin. The R&A reserved one spot in the field of 156 at Royal Troon for the top finisher not otherwise exempt into the major. The Canadian finished third. He’s 2-for-4 at The Open.

    UPDATE (June 11): Jon Rahm withdrew from the U.S. Open today due to an infected cut in his left foot. His position in the field was filled by Jackson Suber, who was the first alternate at final qualifying in Maryland on June 3.

    As it concerns alternates for the U.S. Open, the USGA does not release its master list. This is done to avoid confusion publicly because every qualifying site has two dedicated alternates. If a golfer from one of the 13 qualifying sites withdraws, he is replaced by an alternate from the same site, but if an automatic qualifier withdraws, the USGA calls on the next alternate on the master list that is made up of the 13 first and 13 second alternates.

    NOTE: Golfers are omitted if they recently haven’t competed in majors for which they are eligible (e.g., The Open Championship=Justin Leonard).
