    The Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas will feature the resumption of the Official World Golf Ranking.

    The PGA Tour resumes from 11-14 June when a stacked field gets back to work while the Korn Ferry Tour is also expected to resume the same week with the Korn Ferry Challenge at TPC Sawgrass.

    The resumption of these two Tours will have the rankings resume on a weekly basis.

    The European only returns to work when the British Masters, hosted by Lee Westwood, at Close House Golf Club in Newcastle-upon-Tyne is hosted from 29 July-2 August.

    The OWGR has been frozen since 15 March.

    ‘The upcoming resumption of play in the United States marks the welcome beginning of the recovery of elite men’s golf from the effects of the pandemic,’ said OWGR board chairman Peter Dawson.

    ‘Many of our sport’s top players will be competing and this merits today’s announcement of the reactivation of the Ranking. The safeguards in the OWGR system alongside the continued recognition of the frozen Ranking will help players globally, and the Board will continue to monitor developments in these difficult times.’
