Record number of people sign up for 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst

FAR HILLS, N.J. (AP) --- More people than ever have signed up for a chance to play in the U.S. Open . The USGA said Thursday it received a record 10,127 entrants for the U.S. Open , which will be played June 12-15 at Pinehurst No. 2. That breaks the previous mark of 9,860 who entered a year ago. Among the entries were 51 players exempt from qualifying. That includes 12 former U.S. Open champions, such as defending champion Justin Rose and Tiger Woods . Woods is recovering from back surgery and has said only that he hopes to return to golf this summer. Local qualifying (18 holes) starts May 2 at 111 sites across the country, and 36-hole sectional qualifying will be June 2. There will be two sectional qualifiers May 26 in England and Japan.
