US Open Field 2023 – Los Angeles Country Club

The 2023 US Open takes place at a venue that is hosting a Major for the first time. The Los Angeles Country Club is one of the most prestigious venues in the US, and after 126 years, it finally has a tournament to match that status.

As always, the field for the US Open includes both amateurs and professionals, all hoping to write their name in the history books with victory.

In 2022, Matt Fitzpatrick wrapped up a memorable victory, including an incredible bunker shot on the 72nd hole, helping him get past Will Zalatoris to leave the Englishman celebrating with his family. He will be back this year hoping to replicate that success.

Both Majors in 2023 to date have produced underdog stories that defied the odds to succeed. The most recent, the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, saw club pro Michael Block finish tied for 15th. While he’s not on the course here, amateur Sam Bennett qualifies courtesy of his status as the amateur champion of USA will be hoping to repeat the heroics that saw him finish tied for 16th at The Masters.

Could the stage be set for another lesser-known player to emerge as a fan favorite at the US Open? Time will tell, but until then, the familiar faces will be the most coveted. Jon Rahm claimed his second Major victory at The Masters, and few would bet against him claiming a third. After all, his other Major came at this tournament in 2021 at Torrey Pines.

LIV Golfer Brooks Koepka finished tied for second with Phil Mickelson at Augusta National and both players will have plans to win here. Koepka put that near miss behind him to win the PGA Championship and will surely be one of the favorites to claim his sixth Major title, particularly as a two-time US Open winner.
