2024 U.S. OPEN 
Dates: TBD
Royal Pin Woodland

Invitations will be sent and PTQ registration for the 2024 U.S. Open is scheduled to open on Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2023, at 11 a.m. Eastern pending the finalization of dates and times with the PBA and FOX as part of their schedules. 

The U.S. Open often is regarded as one of the most challenging events in the sport of bowling, featuring a 48-game marathon on demanding playing conditions to determine the finalists and winner of the coveted green jacket.

Competitors at the U.S. Open bowl 24 qualifying games over three days before the field is cut to the top 24 players for round-robin match play. At the conclusion of match play, 48-game totals, including 30 bonus pins for each win in match play, determine the players advancing to the stepladder finals.

Participants earn their spots primarily through invitations based on their on-lane performances during the previous year. Players also can earn their spot through direct qualifiers around the country leading up to the event and a pre-tournament qualifier before the start of the tournament.
