For those players yet to qualify for this year's US Open at Pinehurst No.2, Monday's Final Qualifying represents the last chance to play your way into the third men's Major of the year. 

Dubbed the "longest day in golf", professionals and amateurs will compete in 36-hole events across ten venues in North America, with a certain number of spots available at each site. 

Unsurprisingly, there will be many LIV players in action on Monday, with competitors on the Saudi-backed circuit falling out of automatic qualification due to their lowly Official World Golf Ranking.

Ten players from the Saudi-backed circuit are already in the field. Former champions Jon RahmDustin JohnsonBryson DeChambeauBrooks Koepka and Martin Kaymer all hold exemptions and were joined by Phil MickelsonCameron SmithTyrrell Hatton and Adrian Meronk who qualified automatically by other means.

And there is also Spain's Eugenio Chacarra who made it through final qualifying in Dallas earlier in the month. At that same event, many LIV stars - including 2017 Masters champion Sergio Garcia - failed to secure their spots. 

At other final qualifiers in England and Japan, LIV players such as Sam Horsfield, Kalle Samooja and Scott Vincent all missed out, too. 

In Monday's last batch of Final Qualifiers, 18 LIV players will try to secure their place at the US Open. Headlining the Florida qualifier will be Joaquin Niemann and Dean Burmester who sit first and third in LIV's season-long individual standings. They will be joined by seven more, including 2010 US Open champion Graeme McDowell.

A number of notable names, will not attempt final qualifying. Talor Gooch confirmed he would not be competing earlier in the month, while others including Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen have also forgone Final Qualifying.

Others, such as Patrick Reed, Lee Westwood and Jason Kokrak, initially signed up to compete but have since withdrawn.
