REPORT: PGA Tour to return in June


The PGA Tour, like all other sports, has been on a break thanks to the Coronavirus, however, a new report from Golf Digest’s Brian Wacker has the Tour returning in June.

The first event back will be the Charles Schwab Challenge which will take place between June 11-14. The report also states that there will not be any fans at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth.

Late last week, the Tour sent players a memo saying that it was targeting a return at Colonial. The memo cited the tournament’s original date on the tour calendar of May 21-24, but also said the Tour was evaluating options to “preserve the maximum number of events we can while giving us more time as the crisis evolves.” Sources previously told Golf Digest those options focused on moving the Charles Schwab Challenge to June. The RBC Canadian Open, originally scheduled for June 11-14, will not be played, sources have said, freeing up the date for another event.

Here are the rest of the dates per Golf Digest:

June 25-28: Travelers Championship, TPC River Highlands, Cromwell, Conn.
Keeps original date

July 2-5: Rocket Mortgage Classic, Detroit Golf Club
Moves from May 28-31

July 9-12: John Deere Classic, TPC Deere Run, Silvis, Ill.
Keeps original date

July 16-19: Memorial Tournament, Muirfield Village G.C., Dublin, Ohio
Moves from June 4-7

July 23-26: 3M Open, TPC Twin Cities, Blaine, Minn.
Keeps original date

July 30-Aug. 2: WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, TPC Southwind, Memphis
Moves from July 2-5

July 30-Aug. 2: Barracuda Championship, Tahoe Mt. Club, Truckee, Calif.
Moves from July 2-5

The Tour will then hold the PGA Championship, followed by the FedExCup playoffs, U.S. Open, Ryder Cup, and Masters.

Aug. 6-9: PGA Championship, TPC Harding Park, San Francisco
Aug. 13-16: Wyndham Championship, Sedgefield C.C., Greensboro, N.C.
Aug. 20-23: The Northern Trust, TPC Boston
Aug. 27-30: BMW Championship, Olympia Fields (Ill.) Country Club
Sept. 3-7: Tour Championship, East Lake G.C., Atlanta
Sept. 17-20: U.S. Open, Winged Foot G.C., Mamaroneck, N.Y.
Sept. 25-27: Ryder Cup, Whistling Straits, Haven, Wis.
Nov. 12-15: Masters, Augusta National G.C., Augusta, Ga.

Of course, all of this depends on whether or not government health officials say this is ok.
