Alternate Policy

Players who miss qualifying by 1-2 strokes will be added to an alternates list for the Long Island Open Championship. Alternates will be selected beginning with those who missed the cut by one stroke and continuing to those who missed by two strokes if necessary. Alternates will only be selected prior to the release of the Championship pairings if the Championship field size is below the minimum of 132 players. If the field is above 132 players, alternates will only be selected to ensure all pairings are full or to replace a withdraw that was already in the field.

Alternates will be selected in order starting with the 1st alternate at Bethpage, followed by the 1st alternate at Indian Hills, continuing until the field is filled. The tie breaker among alternates with the same qualifying score will be determined via USGA Match of Cards. If a spot becomes available in the Championship, alternates will be contacted directly by the staff. The cutoff date for alternate selection is Friday, May 31. On-site alternates will not be permitted.
