The 2023 US Open field is getting closer to set with the final deadline to make the field coming with the conclusion of the 2023 RBC Canadian Open.

The year's second major is played at Los Angeles Country Club in Los Angeles, Calif.

There will be 156 players in the competition, and there are 24 different ways to earn a spot in the field.

The USGA strives to have most of the field enter through exemptions and approximately a third through qualifying, and that's the case in this year's field, with 63 players in the field through the results of 13 final qualifying events.
