Former Ryder Cup skippers Colin Montgomerie and Jose Maria Olazabal are in the field for Monday's 36-hole US Open qualifying event at Walton Heath.

Ninety-six players are teeing-up, from which 11 spots are available, and it is highly unlikely that either of the two European captains will make it all the way to Merion, Pennsylvania in mid-June.

Olazabal's last US Open was 2007 while Monty - who turns 50 next month - has not contested any Major championship since 2010.

Monty is currently ranked No 653 in the world and is 150/1 to win the qualifying tournament, while the Spaniard is an even more lowly 200/1.

The lowest price on offer is 20/1 for Italy's Matteo Manaserro, while Alexander Noren and Ross Fisher are next on the list.
