The 122nd playing of the U.S. Open is officially underway in Brookline, Massachusetts, just outside Boston at The Country Club.

Abraham Ancer, however, will not be teeing it up. Before 7:00 a.m. ET Thursday morning, Ancer withdrew from the field citing an illness as the reason he will not play.

He’d seen some success at major championships so far in 2022. While he missed the cut at Augusta National, he tied for ninth at the PGA Championship at Southern Hills last month.

Replacing him in the field is Patton Kizzire, who was first alternate out of the Roswell, Ga., qualifying site. It will be his third appearance in the U.S. Open.

Something may be going around this week, as Jordan Spieth left the practice area abruptly Wednesday and is reportedly battling a stomach bug. He is expected to play.
