Announced: By the PGA of America, the 20 club professionals who have won exemptions into next month’s PGA Championship. The group was taken from the 2019 player-of-the-year standings after the annual PGA Professional Championship, from which the top 20 finishers typically qualify for the PGA Championship, was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. The 20 qualifiers will be led by Ryan Vermeer of Omaha, Neb., the PGA announced Monday in a news release. Vermeer, 42, the director of instruction at Happy Hollow Club in Omaha, was named the PGA’s 2019 player of the year.
