The PGA Tour announced that it is canceling all tournaments through the PGA Championship, which was expected to be played May 14-17, due to concerns with the coronavirus.
TOURNAMENT DATES: -: COURSE: TPC Louisiana: LOCATION: Avondale, LA, USA: YARDAGE: 7,425 PAR VALUE. April 23, 2020 While the 2020 Zurich Classic of New Orleans was sidelined this year by the COVID-19 pandemic, the tournament continues to have charitable, business and entertainment value this week, on its originally scheduled days, April 23-26.
The decision means that the following tournaments now have been called off: the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head, South Carolina; Zurich Classic of New Orleans; Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte; and AT&T Byron Nelson Championship in Dallas.
In a separate announcement, the PGA of America postponed the PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park until a later date, just as Augusta National announced for the Masters on Friday, meaning neither of the first two majors of the golf season will go off as planned.
The Tour’s announcement comes five days after it scrapped the Players Championship after one round and also said that the Valspar Championship in Tampa, WGC Dell Matchplay in Austin and Valero Texas Open in San Antonio would be canceled.
As a result, the Charles Schwab Challenge, scheduled for May 21-24, is the earliest the Tour could play again.
“As we receive more clarity in the coming weeks, the Tour will be working with our tournament organizations and title sponsors, in collaboration with golf’s governing bodies, to build a PGA Tour schedule for 2020 that ensures the health and safety for all associated with our sport and a meaningful conclusion to the season. We will provide further updates when those plans come into focus,” the Tour said in its press release.
The announcement also means that two more PGA Tour Champions events have been wiped out too: the Mitsubishi Electric Classic in Atlanta, Insperity Invitational in Houston and The Tradition in Birmingham, which was originally slated for May 7-10 will now be played September 24-27.
PGA Tour Champions previously announced on March 16 that the Mastercard Japan Championship (June 12-14) will not be contested due to the current travel advisories in place from the CDC, the WHO and the U.S. Department of State.
FORWARD PRESS PODCAST: In this week’s episode of the Forward Press, host David Dusek chats with golf analyst Mark Immelman about the coronavirus pandemic and the effect that it has had on the world of golf, from the NCAA to the PGA Tour.
The following events on the Korn Ferry Tour are also canceled: the Veritex Bank Championship in Dallas, Huntsville Championship in Alabama, Nashville Golf Open, Digital Ally Open in Overland Park, Kansas, while Savannah Golf Championship and the News Sentinel Open in Knoxville have been postponed.
The RBC Heritage, the first PGA Tour event on the schedule after the now-postponed Masters, has announced it will begin issuing refunds for tickets.
“We certainly feel this is the right decision to make for the health and safety of everyone,” said RBC Heritage Tournament Director Steve Wilmot. “We remained optimistic as long as we could knowing the event generates more than $3 million dollars a year for local charities and has a yearly economic impact of $102 million for the state of South Carolina.”
The AT&T Bryon Nelson, which was to be held May 7-10, has also said it will refund tickets.
The Zurich Classic is a great tournament that has a decent field of PGA Tour players that make this stop on their schedule. Some golfers are playing a big string of tournaments after the Masters and some are gearing up for the PGA Championship in three weeks’ time.
Played at the TPC Louisiana the Zurich Classic has always had a history of big names that have played and been crowned champion.

2020 Zurich Classic of New Orleans Tourney Preview
The 2020 Zurich Classic is a bit of a different format than most PGA Tournaments. The PGA Tour has made this tournament a two-man team format which will feature two rounds each of Foursome and Four-Ball competition. By all accounts the new format is liked by the players and is probably here to stay. Fantasy golfers unfortunately got locked out of the fun as the format doesn't allow for any type of DFS games but this may be the time to look at betting on golf as this tournament lends itself to betting and prop betting quite well.
