The US Golf Association has cancelled qualifying for the US Open which remains scheduled for September 17-20 at Winged Foot in Mamaroneck New York

The USGA often points out that typically half of the 156-man field has to go through either 36-hole qualifying or 18-hole and 36-hole qualifying.

When the U.S. Open was postponed, 50 players were exempt through various categories, such as past champions the last 10 years or top 10 from last year's U.S. Open, major champions from the last five years and the top 30 players who reached the Tour Championship last year.

"We take great pride in the fact that many thousands typically enter to pursue their dream of qualifying for a USGA championship, and we deeply regret they will not have that opportunity this year".

In addition to the US Open, the US Open will still be played, such as US Amateur and US Amateur US.

"We appreciate and understand everyone's questions and will provide more information as soon as possible".

Phil Mickelson is among the pros who now isn't exempt for this year's U.S. Open, and had previously said he wouldn't ask the USGA for an exemption.

Jackson is exempt to play in the 120th U.S. Amateur at Bandon (Ore.) Dunes Golf Resort, which will be conducted as scheduled August 10-16, provided CDC recommendations and state and local government guidelines make it possible to do so. 3 at Country Club of Detroit in Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich.; the U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship, which was set for September 12-17 at Kinloch Golf Club in Manakin-Sabot, Va., and Independence Golf Club in Midlothian, Va., and U.S. Senior Women's Amateur Championship, which was scheduled for September 12-17 at The Lakewood Club in Point Clear, Ala.

The USGA now has four remaining championships.

Greece could ban Britons when it reopens to worldwide tourists in July
Elsewhere, Italian airline Alitalia said yesterday it would increase its flights by 36 per cent next month. Greece is set to reopen its borders to global tourists as of July 1, but there is bad news for Britons.

All four championships will be conducted without qualifying. But now the field will be "filled entirely through exemptions".

Final qualifying for the 2020 US Open, conducted over 36 holes, had been scheduled to be held at eight US sites, one in Canada, one in Japan and one in England, in May and June.

The US Open will not have qualifying for the first time considering that 1924.

WPGA executive director Terry Teasdale said he was unsure if the WPGA would play host to any qualifiers for future USGA events this fall.

"Yeah, I'm disappointed, especially getting exempt because of my finish in the 2019 U.S. Amateur", said the 2019 Franklin Regional grad and Notre Dame freshman.

It said Monday that four more were canceled - the U.S. Mid-Amateur and Women's Mid-Amateur, and the U.S. Senior Amateur and U.S. Senior Women's Amateur. After that, we hope to build fans, but that remains to be seen.

THE US Open is set to take place a week prior to the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits.

Many leading players from both Europe and the US - including Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood, Francesco Molinari, Brooks Kopeka and Jon Rahm - have said the match should be postponed rather than played without its unique atmosphere created by the large, partisan galleries.
