Mondays Off: Should the PGA Professional Championship winner get 6 PGA Tour exemptions?

Published

on

The winner of the PGA Professional Championship, Alex Beach, gets an invite to the PGA Championship along with six exemptions into PGA Tour events. Steve got into a conversation that six is too many for a club pro, so the guys discuss both sides or the issue.

Neither Steve nor Knudson watched the Wells Fargo…but Knudson did narrow down some clubs in his bag.

  1. Club Pro

    May 7, 2019 at 1:25 pm

    The PGA CLUB Professional Championship is the championship for club professionals and they actually put on on THE PGA Championship to be contested at Bethpage next week. It was probably a negotiating point when the number of PGA CLUB PROFESSIONALS getting into the PGA CHAMPIONSHIP was reduced years ago. Only 20 Club Pros get into the big event. That is a minimal amount for the association that actually puts on the event. The odds of a Club Pro winning it are extremely slim but there was once a 9th alternate tour player who led the PGA Championship wire to wire and won it. It was the story of the decade in golf. It’s legend now. I say keep the 20 players in the big show and 6 exemptions for the winner of the Club Professional Championship is not a big deal. He’s an extremely solid player and with some focused practice at the right time, he might be able to make it. The opportunity is not too much to ask for the guys who stand behind the counter in your pro shop and, hopefully, make your golf day a bit smoother.
