Opinion Poll: Former PGA Tour player Omar Uresti recently won the PGA Club Professional Championship which, angered many PGA Club Professional members. The nations local club professionals question the fairness of a long-time PGA Tour member, one who has never worked as a club or teaching professional, playing in (and winning) their national championship. Uresti, who defeated Dave McNabb, the head pro at Applebrook Golf Club in Malvern, Pa., on the second playoff hole, joined the PGA Tour full time in 1995. He played in 356 events without winning. In addition, he played 209 Web.com Tour events and won twice. He earned nearly $4.7 million combined on the tours. While no rules have been broken, Uresti now has taken exemptions in upcoming PGA Tour events, including the 2017 PGA Championship, normally reserved for club professionals.
Is this a situation that should be reviewed or is Uresti just taking advantage of a poorly designed PGA policy? @pga @pgatour #pga #pgamember #cpc2017 #cpc #tour #golf #golfchampionship #clubpro #golfpro
