The PGA Tour has announced its new schedule for the rest of the year, starting on 11th June at Colonial
PGA Tour Season To Restart In June Without Fans
The 2020 PGA Tour season is set to resume on 11th June at Colonial Country Club in a fan-less Charles Schwab Challenge.
The Tour has announced it is planning to get back up and running on that date, with the first four events taking place without spectators.
“At this time, the Tour plans to resume play with the first four events closed to the general public but will continue to monitor the situation and follow the recommendations of local and state authorities in order to determine the most appropriate on-site access in each market,” the PGA Tour said in a statement.
“As such, the Tour will continually review available Covid-19-related protocols that could be implemented at PGA Tour events to ensure the health and well-being for all involved.”
The Charles Schwab Challenge in June will be the first PGA Tour event since The Players Championship, which was cancelled after the first round on 13th March due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
The new schedule does not feature a rescheduled Players, but does include the year’s three Majors starting with the USPGA Championship at TPC Harding Park in August.
There will be 13 weeks of tournaments, with 14 tournaments taking place including the opposite-field Barracuda Championship, remaining in the 2020 season, culminating at the Tour Championship at East Lake in early September.
That means that the 2020 PGA Tour season will feature 36 tournaments.
The 2021 season will then get underway a week after the Tour Championship at the Safeway Open in Napa, California, which will be followed by the US Open and Ryder Cup.
The Charles Schwab Challenge (120 players), RBC Heritage (132 players) and the Memorial Tournament (120 players) will all see field size increases to 144 players to provide additional playing opportunities.
