The PGA of America has announced that the 2020 US PGA Championship, scheduled for TPC Harding Park in San Francisco from May 11-17, has been postponed.

In a written statement, PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh said: “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.

“We are and have been working with PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan and our partners 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.”

With the Masters already postponed, the season’s first major is currently scheduled to be the US Open at Winged Foot on June 18-21. No decision on whether that event, or the Open Championship at Royal St George’s in July, will take place, has been made at this time.

The PGA Tour has announced that it has cancelled four further events – the RBC Heritage (April 13-19); Zurich Classic of New Orleans (April 20-26); Wells Fargo Championship (April 27-May 3); and AT&T Byron Nelson (May 4-10).
