Britain's Simon Khan has been invited to play in next week's US Open at Pebble Beach.
A place became available to last month's PGA champion at Wentworth because countryman Justin Rose, winner of last week's Memorial Tournament in Ohio, had not won a US Tour co-sponsored event during the previous 12 months.
Two spots in the US Open at Pebble Beach, California were held open for any player who won multiple US Tour co-sponsored events in that time period.
One of those places remains open should the winner of this week's St Jude Classic in Memphis have multiple victories over the past 12 months.
Khan failed to qualify for the US Open at the Walton Heath qualifying event - held the day after he won at Wentworth - but finished as first alternate.
