London - South Africa's George Coetzee and Alex Noren of Sweden have qualified for the US Open, while past and present European Ryder Cup captains Colin Montgomerie and Jose Maria Olazabal failed to do so.

Noren shot rounds of 67 and 68 in the 36-hole tournament on Monday. He joined Marc Warren of Scotland (70, 65) at 11-under as the leading players of the 11 qualifiers at Walton Heath.

The other qualifiers were: France's Gregory Bourdy and Raphael Jacquelin, England's Lee Slattery and Matthew Baldwin, Italy's Matteo Manassero, Denmark's Soren Kjeldsen, Finland's Mikko Illonen and Ireland's Peter Lawrie.

Montgomerie revealed he made a 900-mile round trip on Sunday from Wentworth to the Scottish Open so he could use a new putter at Walton Heath.

The Scot, who led Europe to victory in the 2010 Ryder Cup, recorded rounds of 68 and 70.

Olazabal shot 67 and 74.

The US Open will be played from June 14-17 at Olympic Club in San Francisco.
