PGA postponed; new date if ‘safe, responsible’

Golf

The PGA Championship, scheduled for TPC Harding Park in San Francisco from May 11-17, has joined the slew of sports-world postponements amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Throughout our evaluation process, we have been committed to following the guidance of public health authorities and given the coronavirus shelter-in-place order in effect in San Francisco, postponement is the best decision for all involved,” PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh said in a news release.

Waugh said the PGA of America hoped to reschedule the tournament sometime in the summer “when it is once again safe and responsible to do so.”

The Masters, the first major of the season scheduled for April 9-12, was postponed indefinitely last week.

“This is a reflection of a thoughtful process,” Waugh said. “We are and have been working in concert with commissioner Jay Monahan and our partners and friends at the PGA TOUR to find an alternative date that works for all. We are all very hopeful for a great outcome.”
