Masters will be played in November as part of new PGA Tour schedule

Golf fans will be desperately missing the Masters this week, but they have at least been given something to look forward to once the coronavirus pandemic is under control.

The PGA Tour announced on Monday that play is tentatively scheduled to resume play on June 15, though no specific tournament was listed. The US Open has been moved to Sept. 14, and the Masters will begin Nov. 9. The Open Championship, which was originally scheduled for July 13, has been canceled.

Joel Beall of Golf Digest is reporting that the June 15 event will be played without fans.

It’s unclear how the changes this year will impact next year’s PGA schedule, if at all. Having the Masters in November and then again in April would certainly be strange, but a lot of sports leagues are going to be dealing with similar scheduling issues. While it does not sound promising for the NBA to resume this season, golf is a unique sport in that it can be played while following social distance protocols.
