T-Minus less than one month until we reportedly have Golf again! Or to be more specific, we have 23 days until the Charles Schwab Challenge emerges as the 23rd event of the 2020 season.
The Players Championship was cancelled after Round 1 and the Charles Schwab Challenge, which was originally scheduled for May 24th, will now start on June 11th. The intermittent seven events have been cancelled including Valspar Championship, Wells Fargo Championship, AT&T Byron Nelson and the WGC – Dell Technologies Match Play. There will be no fans at the first four events (Charles Schwab, RBC Heritage, Rocket Mortgage Classic and John Deere Classic). The Charles Schwab will have an increased field size to 144 players. Next season, the 2020-2021 season will include TWO MASTERS and TWO US OPENS!
