PGA Tour Golf Could Return In June According to Fort Worth Mayor
Fort Worth mayor Betsy Price is confident that the PGA tour could be back on the road very soon indeed with the first rescheduled tournament now less than a month away.
Price clearly wants to see a return to action with the Charles Schwab Challenge set to take place at the Colonial Country Club from June 11th to June 14, the mayor publicly stating;
“I’m very optimistic we can pull this off. We’ve been working with our local partners at the tournament, and they’ve been working diligently with the PGA [Tour] to make this happen.
“We are committed to having testing for the players, caddies and anyone who is going to be working at the clubhouse or the course. And we’ve arranged for other screening every day. It is not going to be a big crowd of people, so I’m pleased with how it is going. Health and safety are clearly the most important — not just for us, but for all of the PGA [Tour] officials and workers, as well.
“And I’m excited about the chance for us to host the first PGA Tour tournament. The Charles Schwab is one of the oldest, and the oldest at the same location. This will help us send a strong message about getting back.” Price added
The PGA season was brought to a screeching halt on March 12th and officials are set for talks on how to restart the golfing season this week and the opening events are expected to be played out without watching spectators in attendance, though clearly millions will eagerly be viewing from home.
Such talk will no doubt lead to great interest from those who like to place a bet at PGA tour events, either on the course itself or from the comfort of their own homes, and it does appear we are moving closer to such a situation and a resumption of traditional sporting events across the board as efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
