PGA Looking to Resume in June 2020
The PGA Tour has announced plans to resume in June with the first four tournaments played behind closed doors.

The Tour has been suspended since March 12th because of the global coronavirus pandemic that has halted all golf.

The Charles Schwab Challenge in Texas is scheduled to be the first tournament back on June 11th - 14th.

“Our hope is to play a role – responsibly – in the world’s return to enjoying the things we love,” said PGA Tour commissioner.

The golfing calendar has been severely disrupted because of the Covid-19 outbreak, with The Open Championship cancelled and the three other men's majors rescheduled.
The RBC Heritage is due to be the second tournament back from June 18th - 21st - the original dates for the US Open, which has been moved to September.

The Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands is next from June 25th - 28th, followed by the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit GC from July 2nd - 5th.

The Memorial Tournament, originally scheduled for June 4th - 7th, will now take place from July 16th - 19th, which is when the 149th Open Championship was due to be held at Royal St George's in Kent.

The PGA Tour statement added: "At this time, the Tour plans to resume play with the first four events closed to the general public but 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.

"As such, 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."

In what could be a confusing summer and autumn, the PGA Tour will end its 2019-20 season and start the next one, with two of this year's men's majors still to be played.

The reorganized calendar will see the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational take place at the end of July, a week before the first men's major of the year, the PGA Championship (August 6th - 9th).

The final two weeks in August will see the start of the three events that make up the FedEx Cup Play-offs, with the season-ending Tour Championship taking place from September 4th - 7th.

The 2020 Bermuda PGA Championship, remains scheduled for October 26th to November 1st.
