The U.S. Open remains more than four weeks off, however the USGA announced on Monday it has considerably altered how in which the tournament will appear. An open area where, technically, any golfer at the USA could win the championship is a staple of the event dating back over 100 decades. Qualifying is frequently held in the months leading up to the championship in places throughout the nation and the entire world. That will not be true for the 2020 variant. Given continued health and security issues, in addition to the possible burden on Allied Golf Associations as well as the classes scheduled to sponsor qualifying, running countless qualifiers throughout the nation for its U.S. Women's Amateur, U.S. Amateur, U.S. Open and U.S. Women's Open wasn't viewed as a feasible choice. An inability to fill an occasion with qualifying competitions creates difficulties. Here is how it generally works: Qualifying occurs at the local level in which a high amount of (typically amateur) actors move on to the sectional level. At this phase, many experts are already cheated, which means you might end up going up from Ryan Palmer or even Scott Stallings though you are just an amateur. This season, you might have observed yourself playing against Phil Mickelson, who isn't yet mechanically capable and could have probably engaged in one of those qualifiers. People who undergo in the dozen or so sectional qualifiers make up roughly half of their 156-golfer area in a given U.S. Open. Another half are exemptions (believe: major champions in the previous five decades, top-60 golfers on earth or Tour Championship participants in the year earlier ). Just just how will the USGA compensate for this reduction of half the area? More exemptions. The present funnel will need to be widened, and the USGA stated,"Additional details about the enlarged exemption classes for each tournament will be made available in the coming months"
