(ERIN, WI) - Davis Love IV and Ryan Palmer are among six players added to the U.S. Open to fill the 156-man field. The USGA sets aside six spots for those who moved into the top 60 in the world ranking on Monday. Chris Wood of England stayed at No. 60 and was the only player who was not previously exempt. That meant five additional spots went to alternates from the 12 sectional qualifying sites. The U.S. Open starts Thursday at Erin Hills. The USGA has a formula to determine from which sectional qualifying sites alternates are chosen, including strength of field at each site and how many spots it was allocated. Michael Putnam from the Columbus, Ohio, qualifier already got in when Ryan Moore withdrew with a shoulder injury. The next five were Whee Kim (Tennessee), Gregory Bourdy (England), Todd Light (Springfield, Ohio), Palmer (Texas) and Love (Georgia). Next in line was Roberto Diaz of Mexico, the first alternate from the New Jersey section. He would get into the field when or if Phil Mickelson withdraws to attend his daughter's high school graduation in California.
