PGA Tour to Resume Play in June


 

The PGA Tour hasn’t hosted an event since March 12, when the The Players Championship was abandoned after just one round of play due to the growing pandemic. The PGA Tour has been forced to shutter operations along with every other professional sports league, with events being postponed or outright canceled. This includes golf's biggest events, with the Open Championship officially canceled and the other 3 majors rescheduled. The PGA Tour has announced it plans to resume play on June 11 with the Charles Schwab Challenge. The event will be behind closed doors without any fans present. 

The Tour also announced some reshuffling, with the RBC Heritage now taking place June 18-21, the Travelers Championship June 25-28, and the Rocket Mortgage Classic July 2-5. The Memorial Tournament was rescheduled to July 16-19, with the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational now occuring in July and the PGA Championship kicking off the first week in August. The next major, the U.S. Open, is rescheduled to take place sometime in September, while the Masters hopes to play in November. The PGA Tour has announced its commitment to following best practices with the aim to open tournaments back to the public when possible, but has already decided that the first 4 events after the prolonged break will be played without fans. They also stress that tournaments will only go ahead if they are deemed safe by local health officials. In the meantime, golf fans can only hope that the situation improves and a sense of normalcy returns to the world of golf.
