PGA Tour bans crowds for the rest of its season

The PGA Tour have confirmed the rest of its season will be played out behind closed doors. 

As the United States' woeful handling of the COVID-19 pandemic continues, it's been decided to keep spectators off courses until September.

The PGA Tour resumed on June 11 with the Charles Schwab Challenge.

The initial plan was to hold the first four tournaments post-return without fans present, and review on a case-by-case basis from there.

This week's Memorial Tournament in Ohio was due to be the first to welcome back spectators, but that plan was nixed following consultation with health officials.

Tournaments like the St. Jude Invitational at Southwind, the Wyndham Championship (August 13-16), The Northern Trust (August 20-23) and the Tour Championship will all play out in relative quiet.

It had already been decided that the PGA Championship in San Francisco would not have fans present due to coronavirus fears.

The PGA Tour's decision does not effect the rearranged Masters or the US Open, neither of which are organised by the Tour.

The season-opening Safeway Championship (September 10-13) at Silverado is the next figure on the horizon regarding the admittance of spectators.
