After a month-long hiatus without live sports, we finally have a tentative return date for the PGA Tour to return to action. According to Golf Digest, the tour is planning to be back in action June 11th-14th at the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas, at the Colonial Country Club.
With a tentative date in mind, the PGA has also released a tentative schedule of events that are as followed.
June 25th-28th: Travelers Championship, TPC River Highlands, Cromwell, Conn. ( Orginal date)
July 2nd-5th: Rocket Mortgage Classic, Detroit Golf Club. ( Moves from May 28th-31st)
July 9th-12th: John Deere Classic, TPC Deere Run, Silvis, Ill. ( Original date)
July 16th-19th Memorial Tournament, Muirfield Village G.C., Dublin, Ohio. ( Moves from June 4th-7th)
July 23rd-26th: 3M Open, TPC Twin Cities, Blaine, Minn. ( Moves from July 2nd-5th.)
July 30th- Aug 2nd: WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, TPC Southwind, Memphis. ( Moves from July 2nd-5th)
July 30th- Aug 2nd: Barracuda Championship, Tahoe Mt. Club, Truckee, Calif. ( Moves from July 2nd-5th.)
According to Golf Digest, once play resumes, all the tournaments would feature playing fields ranging from 144 to 156 which would compensate for the loss of playing opportunities.
The schedule for the remainder of the year would be as followed:
August 6th-9th: PGA Championship, TPC Harding Park, San Francisco
August 13th-16th: Wyndham Championship, Sedgefield C.C., Greensboro, NC
August 20th-23rd: The Northern Trust, TPC Boston
August 27th-30th: BMW Championship, Olympia Fields (Ill.) Country Club
September 3rd-7th: Tour Championship, East Lake G.C., Mamaroneck, N.Y.
September 25th-27: Ryder Cup, Whistling Straights, Haven, Wis.
November 12th-15th: Masters, Augusta National G.C., Augusta, Ga.
If the PGA does, in fact, make a return in June, it will end a three-month-long drought without live sports.
If anything, the return of the PGA will provide much-needed relief for people across the country.
