US Open Exemption For Top-50

The top-50 in the official world rankings on May 1 will from now on be fully exempt for the US Open.

The United States Golf Association's executive committee previously only granted automatic spots to the top-20 at the end of the preceding year. The committee have also extended exemptions to the leading two end-of-season money-winners on the Japan and Australasian PGA Tours, provided those players are ranked in the top-75 in the world at the time.

For this year's $5 million US Open at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa,
Oklahoma from June 14-17, the two Japanese exemptions go to Shingo Katayama and Toru Taniguchi, but the Australasian season does not end until the middle of next month.
