The 2020 PGA Tour schedule will see a June 11 return with the Charles Schwab Challenge after a rescheduled calendar was released for the remaining events of the 2019/20 season.
The PGA Tour has been shutdown since The Players Championship was curtailed after one round in March, with the coronavirus outbreak resulting in the moving of the Masters, USPGA Championship and US Open until later in the season.
On Thursday, the PGA Tour released a revised schedule for the remaining months of the season and things should get back underway on June 11 with the Charles Schwab Challenge to be held behind closed doors at Colonial Country Club in Texas.
The decisions comes about due to the cancellation of the RBC Canadian Open, which would have taken place that week, with the Charles Schwab Challenge moving back three weeks from its original date to take its place.
Other changes in the schedule see the RBC Heritage, which should have taken place on April 13-19, take up the June 15-21 slot vacated by the postponement of the US Open, which now takes place in September.
The RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links, the Travelers Championship (June 22-28) at TPC River Highlands and the Rocket Mortgage Classic (originally scheduled for May 25-31 but now July 2-5), at Detroit Golf Club will also be played behind closed doors.
The Barbasol Championship, originally scheduled for July 13-19 opposite the now cancelled Open Championship, has been replaced by The Memerial Tournament at Muirfield Village which had been due to be held from June 1-7.
The WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational now takes place at the end of July (July 27-August 2) the before the first of the year’s revised majors the USPGA Championship.
The Wyndham Championship on August 10-16 will lead into the FedEx Cup Series, which now consists of the The Northern Trust (August 17-23), the BMW Championship (August 24-30) and the season-ending Tour Championship (August 31-September 7).
“The health and safety of all associated with the PGA TOUR and our global community continues to be our No. 1 priority, and our hope is to play a role – responsibly – in the world’s return to enjoying the things we love,” said PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan as part of the PGA Tour statement.
“Today’s announcement is another positive step for our fans and players as we look toward the future, but as we’ve stressed on several occasions, we will resume competition only when – working closely with our tournaments, partners and communities – it is considered safe to do so under the guidance of the leading public health authorities.”
