• No fans for PGA Championship

    PGA Championship venue open
    TPC Harding Park

    There is good and bad news for the US PGA after it has been reported that the PGA Championship will indeed be played from 6-9 August at TPC Harding Park but without fans.

    According to an exclusive San Francisco Chronicle report, San Francisco public health officials have given the green light for the tournament to be played but with the proviso that fans will not be allowed on site.

    The PGA Championship was moved to August from its initial 14 May date due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    With the Tour now back in play, the first five events – including last week’s Charles Schwab Challlenge – will be played without spectators but the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club on 16 July will have limited fans in attendance.

    This after Ohio governor Mike DeWine approved the concept of fans watching wearing masks. 

    A decision confirming the speculated PGA Championship plan is imminent while a call on the Ryder Cup scheduled for 25 September at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin is also on the list of problems to be solved.
