U.S. Open Round 1: 1st tee, 2:25 p.m.

U.S. Open Round 2: 10th tee, 8:40 a.m.

Russell Henley (No. 57)

  • Last start: MC: FedEx St. Jude Classic (PGA TOUR)
  • 2016 U.S. Open: DNP

Russell Henley began his U.S. Open career in 2010 at Pebble Beach and took low-amateur honors with Scott Langley. Now the 57th-ranked player in the world, the 28-year-old winner of this year’s Shell Houston Open is set for his sixth appearance at this championship but he hasn’t ever improved upon that debut. He finished tied for 42nd in 2011, tied for 60th in 2014 and missed the cut in 2013 and 2015.

Scottie Scheffler (a) (No. 1927 — No. 47-World Amateur Golf Ranking)

  • Last start: T-3: NCAA D1 Championship-Stroke
  • 2016 U.S. Open: MC

20-year-old Scottie Scheffler, who will make his second U.S. Open start after missing the cut at Oakmont last year, was the only amateur to make it out of the tough Columbus sectional qualifier. He had a good showing at the NCAA Championship and hopes to do the same at Erin Hills.

Harris English (No. 106)

  • Last start: T-10: FedEx St. Jude Classic
  • 2016 U.S. Open: T-37

World No. 106 Harris English recently missed five of six cuts on the PGA TOUR to knock him out of the top 100 but has bounced back a bit with T-29 finish at the Dean & DeLuca and a tie for 10th this past weekend in Memphis. This will be his third U.S. Open appearance; he tied for 48th at Pinehurst three years ago and tied for 37th at Oakmont in 2016.

U.S. Open Round 1: 10th tee, 2:25 p.m.

U.S. Open Round 2: 1st tee, 8:40 a.m.

Nick Flanagan (No. 1927)

  • Last start: MC: BMW Charity Pro-Am (Web.com Tour)
  • 2016 U.S. Open: DNP

Former U.S. Amateur champ Nick Flanagan, who won the event in 2003, is returning to the U.S. Open for the first time since 2004 and the five-time Nationwide Tour winner just doesn’t have a lot to go off of recently. He looked good in shooting 11-under at the Dallas sectional but has played in just 11 tournaments in the past two years and has missed the cut in seven of them. He missed the cut at Shinnecock Hills 13 years ago.

Richie Ramsay (No. 309)

  • Last start: T-36: Nordea Masters (European Tour)
  • 2016 U.S. Open: DNP

Also a former U.S. Amateur champ, his coming in 2006, RIchie Ramsay is making his first appearance at the U.S. Open in a decade after following a 12-under total at the Surrey sectional. He does have three European Tour victories to his credit but hasn’t had a top-10 in nearly a year. Ramsay missed the cut at Oakmont in 2007.

Bryson DeChambeau (No.151)

  • Last start: MC: FedEx St. Jude Classic (PGA TOUR)
  • 2016 U.S. Open: T-15

The USGA is so clever, aren’t they? The final former U.S. Amateur champion in this group is 2015 winner Bryson DeChambeau, who had a very good showing at Oakmont last year and finished tied for 15th. Erin Hills will be his third appearance at this championship; he missed the cut at Chambers Bay two years ago and has missed the weekend in his last six starts on the PGA TOUR.
