You’re making the Hero World Challenge look like a full field event right about now

Yeah, I should mention that the NIT title also comes with a spot in the Hero.

25 years ago or so the USGA puts out the qualifying sites for the US Open and the first site is in Minneapolis. My friend is a scratch-ish player, big money gui but not huge on the amateur scene. Anyhow, he signs up and gets the first tee time. Day of the qualifier he birdies the first hole. I think he leaves right then and there claiming that for one brief moment in time, he has led the US Open and nobody can ever take that away from him.

Sorry, guis but given the COVID situation, we’ve cancelled all NIT events and qualifications. We’ll see you in 2021 and start all over.

I guess I better add: NOT ACTUALLY OFFICIAL

Updated OP with adjacent PGA Tour and Korn Ferry Tour event date changes.

Is the Milwaukee event back on now that courses are opening? How can I sign up?

The MacKenzie in Scotland (the opposite field event) was obviously cancelled.

It has been postponed for 12 months and the 2020 Tournament is now taking place in April 2021.

That’s not the one listed here, right? Was it ever granted qualifying spots?

the MacKenzie was granted 1 qualifying spot for the winner, as per a post from Big Randy.

Course may be opening, but I’m guessing they still don’t want people to come from out of state to golf. Will have to await official news from NLU, but I highly doubt it will happen in May.

I believe there was also a spot given out for the BBQ event in North Carolina.
Plus @Hala-Mark-Rey C-Suited into the NIT while in San Antonio so you can add that to the list.

Totally get that. Just wanted to get my name on the list in case it happens then or on an alternate date.

Correct.

If I recall correctly, the Nest pod from March indicated they may dig a bit deeper for qualification on some of the already completed events and future events.

Unrelated, @CrucialTaunt and I finished in a tie for 2nd in Charlotte by virtue of meeting our quota (it was a bloodbath out there).

I thought it was the group that finished first…or did I mishear that?

Or let’s settle it with a Zoom game of GOLO?
