It took a day more than it should have, but the Players Championship has finally been cancelled.

It is with regret that we are announcing the cancellation of THE PLAYERS Championship.

We have also decided to cancel all PGA TOUR events – across all of our Tours – in the coming weeks, through the Valero Texas Open.

We have pledged from the start to be responsible, thoughtful and transparent with our decision process. We did everything possible to create a safe environment for our players in order to continue the event throughout the weekend, and we were endeavoring to give our fans a much-needed respite from the current climate.  But at this point – and as the situation continues to rapidly change – the right thing to do for our players and our fans is to pause.

We will be prepared to answer additional questions on Friday at 8 a.m.

With every other sports league taking a very direct stance in keeping both participants and fans safe from the Coronavirus, it was only a matter of time before the PGA Tour did the same.

The Players isn’t the only event that has been cancelled; the Valspar Championship, WGC-Dell Match Play, and Valero Texas Open have also been added to the list.

As we all know, the Masters is after the Valero Texas Open and it is in serious doubt at this point.
