One of the PGA Tour Majors, which finally passed for September, will be played without spectators.
The 120th edition of the Us Open finally will not have an audience after the decision of the United States Golf Association (USGA), in relation to the coronavirus pandemic.
One of the Majors on the PGA Tour circuit had to be rescheduled from June to September, precisely between the 14th and 20th of that month, hoping to have the fans with the golfers.
“Due to continuing health and safety concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic and in consultation with New York State, the USGA will hold the 120th US Open September 14-20 at the Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck (New York) without spectators, “said Mike Davis, head of the USGA, in a statement.
And he added that after months of consultations and planning with different officials, “we have jointly decided that holding the US Open without spectators will provide the best opportunity to carry out the championship safely for all involved.”
While the British Open was canceled in 2020, the PGA Championship will take place from August 6 to 9 and the Augusta Masters from November 12 to 15.
