The U.S. Amateur Four-Ball is an amateur team golf tournament conducted by the United States Golf Association (USGA). It was first played in 2015 and replaced the U.S. Amateur Public Links, an individual tournament that was played from 1922 to 2014.

The U.S. Amateur Four-Ball is played by teams of two golfers each with a handicap of 5.4 or less. 128 teams compete in a 36-hole stroke play qualifier that determines the field of 32 teams for match play. Play is conducted using a four-ball format.[1]

The women's counterpart is the U.S. Women's Amateur Four-Ball, also started in 2015.
