COVID-19 – PGA Championship postponed

The year’s second Major, the PGA Championship, has been postponed because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The tournament was scheduled to take place at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, California from 11-17 May.

“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,” said PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh.

“This is a reflection of a thoughtful process,” Waugh added. “We are and have been working in concert with Commissioner Jay Monahan and our partners and friends at the PGA TOUR to find an alternative date that works for all. We are all very hopeful for a great outcome.

“We are also in dialogue with Mayor Breed and her team at the City of San Francisco and look forward to hopefully bringing the 2020 PGA Championship to TPC Harding Park at a date this summer when it is once again safe and responsible to do so.

The PGA Tour have also cancelled the RBC Heritage (April 13-19); Zurich Classic of New Orleans (April 20-26); Wells Fargo Championship (April 27-May 3); and AT&T Byron Nelson (May 4-10). 

Yesterday the European Tour also confirmed the postponement of the Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucia Masters hosted by the Sergio Garcia Foundation (April 30 – May 3).
