PGA Tour to restart in June without fans on course

The PGA Tour have confirmed that play will resume with the Charles Schwab Challenge on June 8. 

The competition had originally been scheduled to start on May 18 but was among a swathe of postponements as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

A statement from the Tour says they plan to play their first four tournaments upon resumption behind closed doors.

Following the Schwab Challenge, the RBC Heritage (June 15-21), The Travelers Championship (June 22-28) and the Rocket Mortgage Classic (July 2-5) will all be played without fans present.

The Tour say they will "continue to monitor the situation and follow the recommendations of local and state authorities in order to determine the most appropriate on-site access in each market."

They add the the Tour, "will continually review available COVID-19-related protocols that could be implemented at PGA TOUR events to ensure the health and well-being for all involved."

The RBC Canadian Open scheduled for June 8-14 has been cancelled.

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan says of the return dates, "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."
