PGA Tour Champions plan to resume in late-July, play 13 events in 15 weeks

The PGA Tour Champions released its plan to restart play in late-July at The Ally Challenge in Grand Blanc, Mich., seven weeks after the PGA Tour’s scheduled return to action in June and more than four months since the over-50 circuit held its last event.

The reworked schedule includes a new date for the Bridgestone Senior Players Championship (Aug. 13-16). The Dick’s Sporting Goods Open was originally scheduled for that date but the event has been canceled because of the severity of the coronavirus outbreak in New York.

“We are disappointed to announce the cancellation of one of our premier events on PGA Tour Champions, but this unprecedented climate has forced us to work closely with our tournaments in establishing what is best for their respective markets,” tour president Miller Brady said in a statement.

The LPGA announced another update to its schedule on Wednesday, pushing its season resumption to mid-July.

All total, seven events have been canceled including the Senior PGA Championship and U.S. Senior Open. The Senior Open has been postponed but is currently not on the schedule.

The Principal Charity Classic (Sept. 4-6) and the Regions Tradition (Sept. 24-27) have also been rescheduled, with the season finale scheduled for Nov. 5-8 in Phoenix.

The PGA Tour Champions suspended its schedule in March and had played just five events this season. If play resumes in July the circuit will finish the season with 13 events in 15 weeks.

The tour didn’t announce whether fans will be allowed at tournaments when play resumes. The PGA Tour’s revised schedule will be played without fans for at least the first four events.
