Luke Donald finished 57th in the Memorial Tournament

Former number one Luke Donald qualified for this year's US Open but Lee Westwood and triple big winner Padraig Harrington missed.

Donald of England, 41, reached his first major since 2017 on sectional qualification in Ohio, with Pebble Beach as his first US Open since 2016.

Ryder Cup captain Harrington broke with two shots during qualification in Canada.

Westwood, another former number one in the world, released three shots in qualifying at Walton Heath.

However, the Englishman Sam Horsfield, 22, finished second in Surrey and reached the US Open – which takes place this year in California from June 13 to 16 – for the third time.

His compatriot Callum Tarren went to Pebble Beach with the win in the Florida Qualifiers after the 28-year-old just missed a single shot qualification last year.

American Jason Dufner, the 2013 US PGA champion, competed in the qualifying match in Ohio alongside Donald and made it to fight his 10th consecutive US Open.

Firefighter Matt Parziale, 31, was one of the amateurs to seal their place on Pebble Beach while finishing second in New York.
