The U.S. Open held back three spots in the 156-man field in case players qualified in the past week by either moving into the top 50 in the world ranking or becoming a multiple PGA Tour winner of the past year.
Gary Woodland, who secured his spot in the top 50 with his sixth-place finish at the Memorial two weeks ago, was at No. 40 in the ranking published Monday.
Two other spots were awarded to alternates -- Zack Byrd from the New Jersey sectional qualifier Sunday night, and Adamonis from Maryland qualified Monday morning.
The U.S. Open starts Thursday with Graeme McDowell as the defending champion.
