    Yeah, these are strange. I can understand it because you can't just vanish as an organization and these might get a little bit of pop in the barren sports news world, but as we sit here today I don't think anyone sees much happening in June. You could take all the necessary steps internally to alert players and whoever else needs to know and if it leaks out to media, so be it. But grand schedule pronouncements for anything in 2020 are risky.

    PGA Tour resumes Mid-June at Memorial with no fans.
    PGA- August 6
    US Open- September 17
    Ryder Cup- September 25
    Masters- November

    The Open is cancelled this year.

    One thing that I saw noted last week in the Open story: They have insurance coverage for a pandemic, which is why they were choosing to cancel rather than postpone.

    This is obviously a topic for another day, but does this long break help or hurt Tiger and his ailing body?

    U.S. Senior Open and Senior Women's Open are bagged. No time to conduct qualifying, so that makes sense.

    Two of our member clubs are hosting the U.S. Mid-Amateur in September, the week before the new U.S. Open date. Qualifying for that doesn't start until July. Hopeful that still takes place. U.S. Open still plans on having full qualifying, and it can wait until late July/early August if need be to conduct that for a September date.

    Wonder how this plays out with TV schedules since CBS, Fox and ESPN have football commitments. Of course, that's assuming there is football, which I am starting to have more doubts about every day.

    Also, the Open will be at Royal St. George's next year, not St. Andrews as previously scheduled.

    They had scheduled St. Andrews for the 150th playing of the Open, so this cancellation doesn't change that. Will still be the 150th in 2022.

    Yes, which makes sense. Guessing Royal Liverpool and Royal Troon keep their spots, just one year later.
