PGA Tour scraps plan to have fans at Memorial due to COVID-19

作者:admin 2020-07-07

The PGA Tour said on Monday next week’s Memorial Tournament in Dublin Ohio, which was supposed to be the first since the circuit’s return from a three-month COVID-19 hiatus to include spectators, will instead be held without fans.

The Jack Nicklaus-hosted event at Muirfield Village Golf Club had received state approval in mid-June to have limited attendance and planned to allow 20% maximum capacity on the property for the July 16-19 event.

But the PGA Tour said that due to the rapidly changing dynamics of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Memorial would instead go ahead as its sixth consecutive tournament without fans.

“Given the broader challenges communities are facing due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we need to stay focused on the No. 1 priority for our return to golf — the health and safety of all involved,” PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan said in a news release.

“While this was a difficult decision, it was one made collectively, and we are appreciative of the process undertaken to this point that will allow us to welcome on-site fans when the time is right.”
