Dubai-born Josh Hill, currently studying on a golf scholarship at the University of Tennessee, is on the brink of qualifying for the upcoming US Open, the third major golf tournament of the year. He is among 68 golfers, including both professionals and amateurs, competing at the Golf Club of Georgia in June for a spot in the 124th US Open at Pinehurst Resort and Country Club.

Expressing his anticipation, Josh mentioned, “I’m thrilled to be part of the Final Qualifying for the US Open on Monday. I believe in my form, so hopefully, I will perform well. It has been a challenging journey to recover from my injury, but my confidence is returning due to rigorous training.” The Final Qualifying consists of 10 rounds taking place in Canada and the US.

After excelling in the Local Qualifying rounds, shooting a remarkable four under par 68, Josh is set to play 36 holes in a day at the Final Qualifying Round. The number of available qualifying spots will be announced on the day.

Notably, the field at the Golf Club of Georgia also includes 23-year-old Christo Lamprech from South Africa, along with other prominent golfers such as Hudson Swafford, Andy Ogletree, and Jason Dufner. Following the US Open Final Qualifier, Josh will participate in the St Andrews Links Trophy and The Amateur Championship.

The Amateur Championship, held at Ballyliffin GC, Ireland, will see 288 participants competing in Strokeplay rounds to determine the top 64 players for the Matchplay segment. Notable entrants in the qualifying field include Oscar Craig and Sam Mullane from Jumeirah Golf Estates, Khaled Attiah from Saudi Arabia, Issa Abou El Ela from Egypt, James Nash from Wales, and Kipp Ropert from England, who holds the top position on the WR4GD Rankings.
