Future stars of the game shine on the U.S. Amateur stage, as a total of 19 champions have gone on to win major championships at the professional level including Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods. The last time the U.S. Amateur was played in Minnesota was in 2006, when Richie Ramsay beat John Kelly 4-and-2 in the final to become the first Scotsman to win the U.S. Amateur since 1898. En route to his victory, Ramsay beat Rickie Fowler in the quarterfinals and future U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson in the semifinals.  
Last year at Cherry Hills Country Club outside of Denver, Colo., Nick Dunlap, a standout at the University of Alabama, joined Woods as the only players to have won both the U.S. Amateur and U.S. Junior Amateur titles. Five months later, Dunlap became the first amateur in 33 years to win a PGA Tour event (American Express Championship) and turned pro a week later. 
The 2024 U.S. Amateur will be the 37th USGA championship played in Minnesota and the 9th at Hazeltine. The club has hosted two U.S. Opens, including 1991 when the late Payne Stewart won the first of his two U.S. Open titles. Englishman Tony Jacklin won the 1970 U.S. Open. Hazeltine has also hosted two PGA Championships, won by Rich Beem (2002) and Y.E. Yang (2009), in addition to the 2016 Ryder Cup. The club will host the 2026 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and will become the first U.S. venue to host a Ryder Cup for a second time when the matches return in 2029. 
The starting field of 312 players for the U.S. Amateur Championship will play 18 holes of stroke play on Aug. 12 and 13, with one round at Hazeline and one at Chaska Town Course, after which the field will be cut to the low 64 scores. Six rounds of match play begin on Wednesday, Aug. 14, and the championship concludes with a 36-hole championship match on Sunday, Aug. 18. The winner and runner-up are exempt into the following year’s U.S. Open Championship at Oakmont (Pa.) Country Club. The championship is open to amateur golfers with a Handicap Index® not exceeding 0.4. Entries are now open at champs.usga.org.
