LIV Golf's Patrick Reed was forced to withdraw from U.S. Open qualifying through injury, meaning he will miss a major for the first time since 2014.

Patrick Reed won't be teeing it up at the 2024 U.S. Open after the LIV Golf pro was forced to withdraw from final qualifying through injury. 

Reed was one of a number of breakaway tour players who had planned to compete in qualifying on 20 May, one day after the PGA Championship

It is unknown what injury prevented Reed from competing at the Dallas Athletic Club but his withdrawal means we won't see him compete in a major championship for the first time since the 2014 Masters. 

Reed, nicknamed Captain America over his Ryder Cup performances for Team USA, finished in a tie for 12th at last month's Masters which saw him sneak inside the top 100 of the world rankings. 

That was enough to secure him an invitation to Valhalla last week. 

He needed to finish third in Louisville to crack the top 60 and earn an invite into the U.S. Open which will be staged at the famed Pinehurst No.2 next month. 

Reed was in good form last week. He cracked up after the golfer was asked to sign a copy of a golf rulebook

And he later offered a whimsical one-liner to a reporter after Scottie Scheffler was arrested. 

Overall, the Dallas qualifier had nine players from LIV Golf compete. Eugenio Chacarra was the only one to get through and will be playing his first major championship next month. 

Elsewhere, Sergio Garcia was on the verge of getting one of the 11 spots on offer before a sloppy finish saw him go into a seven-man playoff.

Garcia finished his round with a double-bogey and two pars. 

He made a bogey at the first playoff hole, missing a par putt from inside 10 feet to become the lone man out. 

Garcia is now the first alternate for the 2024 U.S. Open but if he misses out it will be the first time he has missed the major since 1999

As for Reed, he faces the prospect of finding it increasingly difficult to get into the majors. 

LIV have officially withdrawn their application for world ranking points. 

As a green jacket winner, the 33-year-old can tee it up at Augusta National for life but the Open, US Open and PGA Championship will be different propositions.  

He has previously spoken of his potential exclusion from the majors. 

"Hopefully the PGA and the U.S. Open and The Open Championship take a look at things like that and take consideration on who they’re deciding to give exemptions to," he previously said. 

In fairness to the PGA of America, they decided to award world number 668 to the PGA Championship. 

Talor Gooch was extended a special invitation given he was LIV's 2023 individual champion. 

It represented the first time a major governing body recognised a golfer's performance on LIV. 

When is the 2024 US Open?

The 2024 US Open will take place at Pinehurst from 13-16 June.

The 124th edition of the major championship will see 156 players compete for golf's coveted prize in North Carolina.
