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 event that hasn’t yet been postponed is the 2020 U.S. Open at Winged Foot Golf Club in New York.
While there’s been no official word yet on either the U.S. Open, scheduled for June 18-21 at Winged Foot Golf Club, or the U.S. Women’s Open, scheduled June 4-7 at Cypress Creek Club, the USGA announced there will be neither local qualifying for the U.S. Open nor sectional qualifying for the U.S. Women’s Open this year.
“[We] will look to redesign qualifying going forward as events unfold,” it was stated in a press release.
In the same release, it was announced that the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball and U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball have both been canceled.
The earliest the PGA Tour could return is at the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Tex., on May 21. Notes on other golf events: The PGA Championship was postponed on March 17. It has yet to be rescheduled. The Ryder Cup is still set for late September. And there are rumors that the Masters will be played in October, though that’s far from set in stone.
