The Farmers Insurance Open has become the latest PGA Tour event to announce that no fans will be allowed to attend the event in January.
Usually one of the flagship competitions to kickstart the new year, the famous Torrey Pines golf course will join the ever-growing list of spectacular courses to have an empty gallery.
The tournament’s executive director, Marty Gorsich, said he expected the disappointment following months of preparation during a time when the USA was severely hit with Covid-19.
‘I’ve told my people that this will come down to BV and PV—before vaccine and post vaccine.
‘We may not be able to provide everything we’ve given them in the past, but the reality is that we can provide something that is far superior to anything else people can access now,’ Gorsich added.
The event will tee off from 28-31 January.
