This is an important factor, helping to bring the entire number of golfers to the field for the first two rounds of a full-field event with 156 people like the US Open in the area with “days shorter than nights” in the last months of the year. like the state of California.

Early in the season, Masters on Augusta National Stadium were at the top of the traditional major quartet’s calendar, with a 9/4 opening date. But Covid-19 caused the Organizing Committee to postpone the announcement on March 13.

In the revised program, Masters will start on November 9. And in accordance with this arrangement, the PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco became the main launch artillery, from August 6-9.

The following weeks were part of the PGA Tour with one event per week, respectively, including the Wyndham Championship, three FedEx Cup playoff tournaments, and the 2019-2020 Championship Championship Tournament on East Lake in Atlanta.

During the sessions, the reopening of the PGA Tour’s main event The Players Championship was also a topic of discussion, but ultimately fell out of the game. And until now, the Ryder Cup is kept in the same position – from September 25 to September 28.

Despite the new calendar, the major events may change due to Covid-19. And within the current vision, the PGA Tour aims to reopen the arena by mid-June. That will enable them to use four weeks of golf vacations at the Olympic Games (delayed until next year), US and British major expands.
