CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: PGA Tour cancels upcoming tournaments including PLAYERS Championship

The PGA Tour has officially announced that they have cancelled all tournaments through the Valero Texas Open slated to being on April 2, 2020.

This cancellation also applies to THE PLAYERS Championship which was already underway at TPC Sawgrass which has Hideki Matsuyama leading by two strokes.

The PGA Tour statement:

It is with regret that we are announcing the cancellation of THE PLAYERS Championship.

We have also decided to cancel all PGA TOUR events – across all of our Tours – in the coming weeks, through the Valero Texas Open.

We have pledged from the start to be responsible, thoughtful and transparent with our decision process. We did everything possible to create a safe environment for our players in order to continue the event throughout the weekend, and we were endeavoring to give our fans a much-needed respite from the current climate. But at this point – and as the situation continues to rapidly change – the right thing to do for our players and our fans is to pause.

The next tournament in line after the Valero Texas Open?

The Masters Tournament, scheduled for April 9-12.
