Pinehurst, NC ( - Kevin Na and Bernd Wiesberger were among five players that rounded out the field for the 114th U.S. Open Championship.

Na and Wiesberger earned their spots in the field thanks to their world ranking. Na was 40th in the newest rankings on Monday. Wiesberger moved up to No. 60 despite being a playoff loser at the Lyoness Open.

The 30-year-old Na will be competing in his fourth U.S. Open. He missed the cut in two of the previous three, tying for 29th in 2012.

Wiesberger will be making his first U.S. Open start. It will be his fourth major championship overall.

Five spots had been held by the USGA for players that could have possibly moved into the top-60 in the world rankings. With Na and Wiesberger being the only two that moved in, three alternates were chosen to round out the field.

Craig Barlow, along with amateurs Cameron Wilson and Brandon McIver, were the final three to get into the field.

Barlow will be making his sixth U.S. Open start. He has made the cut in three of his previous five Opens, with a tie for 26th in 2006 being his best finish.

Wilson, who missed the cut at the 2012 U.S. Open, recently won the NCAA individual title, and he birdied the sixth playoff hole at his qualifier to earn his alternate spot. McIver will make his first start in the U.S. Open.

The U.S. Open kicks off June 12. England's Justin Rose will defend his title at Pinehurst No. 2.
