Ken Venturi (1964) and Orville Moody (1969) are the only two golfers to advance through both stages of qualifying and win the U.S. Open.
Bodenhamer said no qualifying provides "the best path forward" to holding the U.S. Open.
"We know this isn't going to be the everyday U.S. Open with 30,000 to 40,000 individuals on website".
The US Women's Open, US Amateur and US Women's Amateur competitions will all take place without qualifying.
The tournament was postponed to September 17-20 from its June date at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York, as the coronavirus outbreak rattled the world of professional sports and shredded the golf calendar. Open's postponed championship event will forgo the sectional and local qualifiers, a cherished tradition among its fans due to the staging difficulties. A USGA official said on Monday that they were in the process of completing the release process, which would likely be broken down into several categories.
Palmer Jackson was enjoying the day on a lake in Cambria County when he learned the news Monday that the United States Golf Association was cancelling all qualifiers for championship events.
"As you can imagine, this is a very hard decision, because qualification is the cornerstone of the USGA championship", John Bodenhamer, senior director of championship management for USGA, said in a statement. "We take great pride in the fact that many thousands typically enter to pursue their dream of qualifying for the U.S. Open and we deeply regret that they will not have that opportunity this year".
Mickelson said in February he would not ask the USGA for an exemption, and that if he didn't qualify or become exempt, he wouldn't play.
In 2006, Mickelson double-bogeyed the final hole at Winged Foot to lose the U.S Open by one shot.
The USGA had 108 neighborhood qualifiers intended in 45 states as well as one in Canada, complied with by 12 sectional qualifiers, 9 in the US, one each in Canada, England as well as Japan.
In early April, the USGA suspended the US Open from the original June to September in hopes that the COVID-19 crisis would subside at that time.
The pandemic shut down golf on March 13, two months before the top 60 in the world ranking would have been exempt for the U.S. Open. The PGA Tour is about to re-start on June 11 with the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas.
All the changes mean the USGA will now conduct just four championships in 2020 - all at their originally scheduled sites.
The USGA also announced the cancellation of four 2020 amateur championships, bringing the number of cancelled USGA championships to 10 - including the US Senior Open and the US Senior Women's Open.
