Organisers say they're hopeful that the US PGA Championship can be rescheduled this summer, following the decision to postpone it due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, California was due to host the major between May 11th and 17th but officials in the city asked residents yesterday to "shelter in place" to help contain the virus.
It follows the Masters at Augusta being postponed last week as well as four upcoming PGA Tour events between now and May - the RBC Heritage, Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Wells Fargo Championship and AT&T Byron Nelson.
"Throughout our evaluation process, we have been committed to following the guidance of public health authorities and given the coronavirus shelter-in-place order in effect in San Francisco, postponement is the best decision for all involved," PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh announced in a statement.
"This is a reflection of a thoughtful process. We are and have been working in concert with Commissioner Jay Monahan and our partners and friends at the PGA Tour to find an alternative date that works for all. We are all very hopeful for a great outcome.
"We are also in dialogue with Mayor Breed and her team at the City of San Francisco and look forward to hopefully bringing the 2020 PGA Championship to TPC Harding Park at a date this summer when it is once again safe and responsible to do so."
