Alternates: Per the Connecticut Open alternate policy, any player with the next best score after the cut line will be placed on the alternate list. Alternates will be randomly ranked and may be placed into the starting field to fill any remaining spots necessary to build a full field or to replace an exempt or qualifying player that withdraws after qualifying has been completed.

Players who do not follow this policy will be subject to suspension from future CSGA competitions.
