After the first stage of qualifying is completed, the players who qualified move onto the Sectional Qualifier that they choose on their entry form. Black Diamond Ranch's Quarry Course is hosting the US Open Sectional Qualifier in Florida on June 4th. Typically, around 50 players compete in the sectional qualifier held in Florida with 2-4 players advancing to the Championship. The "sectional" is 36-holes played on one day, while the local qualifiers are 18-holes.
