Lee was the last name added to the 144-strong New York field after the Tour Championship wrapped up yesterday with five spots up for grabs.

The top five points leaders who had yet to qualify through other means earned spots into the US Open, with the New Zealander being the fifth-ranked golfer eligible for such qualification.

The completed field features 11 past champions and 13 amateurs and includes players representing 25 countries.

Fellow New Zealander Ryan Fox is also in the field.
