We don’t know much about the 2020 sports calendar at this moment, but what we are sure of is that things will be very different this year. The suspension of the NBA, NHL and MLB, as well as the canceling of the 2020 NCAA Tournament has left the sports schedule in flux. And, as we’ve all heard over the past 10 days, the situation remains fluid.
One thing we do know is that golf’s first two major tournaments of the 2020 season will be postponed — first the Masters and now the PGA Championship.
“Throughout our evaluation process, we have been committed to following the guidance of public health authorities and given the coronavirus shelter-in-place order in effect in San Francisco, postponement is the best decision for all involved,”
The tournament, which was supposed to take place at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, will be pushed back until “a date this summer when it is once again safe and responsible to do so,” according to Waugh’s statement.
Every PGA tournament through the PGA Championship in mid-May has been canceled. The Ryder Cup, slated to be played in Wisconsin in September, has been pushed to 2021.
