Auto-Qualification for Teams Attending the US Open

Following the recent announcement that applications to the US Open 2019 are now open, the UKU Competitions Committee undertook a review about whether there are any circumstances in which it is reasonable to grant automatic qualification to UKU Nationals for a team attending the US Open.


The UKU Competitions Committee has now agreed that ONLY if UKU Regionals & the US Open are being held on the same weekend, auto-qualification to UKU Nationals will now be possible for UK teams that meet the following criteria:

  • Qualified for, or attended, EUCF in the previous year
  • Attends the US Open in the current year
