Except that Nikko qualified by finishing in the top 10 at last year's USDGC and had until Aug 31 of this year to register, and Cale qualified at The Memorial in Feb, so both of them had more than ample time to build their schedules around competing. So both had more than ample time and opportunity to arrange their schedules around attending, but chose not to register within their respective registration windows. I highly doubt that either would have failed to register on time if they weren't eligible to compete in Monday Qualifying.
