The PGA is the first sports organization to announce plans to resume playing amid the global coronavirus pandemic. The PGA Tour is going to resume matches on June 8 with the Charles Schwab Challenge at the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas.
The PGA said that at least the first four tournaments will be played without any fans present. There will be 14 events, and the season will come to an end with the Tour Championship on Labor Day, which falls on September 7 this year.
The 2020-21 season would begin the following week with the Safeway Open at the Silverado Resort and Spa North in Napa, California.
“The health and safety of all associated with the PGA TOUR and our global community continues to be our No. 1 priority, and our hope is to play a role – responsibly – in the world’s return to enjoying the things we love,” said PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan. “Today’s announcement is another positive step for our fans and players as we look toward the future, but as we’ve stressed on several occasions, we will resume competition only when – working closely with our tournaments, partners and communities – it is considered safe to do so under the guidance of the leading public health authorities.”
