LIV golfer Sergio Garcia comes through qualifying to secure spot at US Open

Former Masters champion Sergio Garcia has successfully qualified for this year's US Open tournament, to be played at the Los Angeles Country Club from June 15–18.

Former Masters champion Sergio Garcia will play at next month's US Open after coming through final qualifying to book his spot.

The Spaniard missed last week's US PGA Championship – the first major in 24 years for which he had not been present – after joining the breakaway LIV Golf Series and therefore not being high enough in the world rankings.

An opening-round 66 at Bent Tree Country Club in Dallas left him two shots off the projected qualifying line but he produced a back-nine rally in his second round at Northwood, including an eagle at the 14th and a birdie at the last, to card another 66 and claim one of the eight spots available to play at the Los Angeles Country Club.

"I played well and I knew what I needed. I didn't want to be in a play-off. I've done that before. It's pretty scary," Garcia told

Former US Open champion Graeme McDowell, another LIV member, missed out on a five-man play-off after three-putting the last at Northwood.
