Sergio Garcia, winner of the 2004 EDS Byron Nelson Championship in May, and Miguel Angel Jimenez, winner of three events on the 2004 European PGA Tour, are two of the 12 golfers who earned full exemptions into the U.S. Open with the close of three active categories as of May 31. A total of 76 golfers are fully exempt from qualifying for the upcoming Championship, scheduled from June 17-20 at the Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, N.Y.

Garcia and Jimenez earned their exemptions by easily staying in the top 50 in the World Rankings. The other 10 who earned full exemptions by being in the top 50 of the updated World Rankings are Stephen Ames, Angel Cabrera, Stewart Cink, Fred Couples, Todd Hamilton, Joakim Haeggman, Scott Hoch, Zach Johnson, Shigeki Maruyama and Craig Parry.

Cink also earned his full exemption through the updated list for the top 10 money leaders on the PGA Tour. The other nine leading money leaders on the PGA Tour and the top two money leaders of the European Tour for 2004 were already fully exempt. The remainder of the top 50 ranked players (38) was already fully exempt through other criteria.

Sectional qualifying for the remaining 80 spots will take place at 13 sites on June 7-8.
