PGA Tour Events to Resume in Mid-June: Report


The PGA is planning to announce that the tour season will resume beginning June 11-14 with the Charles Schwab Challenge in Texas, according to a report.

The four-day event, held at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, will not be open to fans, Golf Digest reported, and subsequent PGA tournaments are expected to follow similar restrictions on spectators due to the coronavirus pandemic.

PGA tour officials discussed the plan with players during a Tuesday call, the report said.

The PGA Tour has been suspended for weeks, along with most other professional sports, due to the public health crisis.

The PGA circulated a memo last week informing players it was hoping to return for the Charles Schwab Challenge, which was originally scheduled for May 21. Instead, the tournament will be pushed back to June 11, according to Golf Digest, and the RBC Canadian Open, which was originally scheduled for June 11, will be canceled.

The US Open was to be held the following week, on June 18, before it was postponed to September.

Several other tournaments are expected to be shuffled through June and July, the report said, though none of them majors.

It's unclear whether the PGA's plan will come to fruition, or if other sports will resume first, but for now it looks like golf will be one of the first sports to commit to a return date.
