It’s going to be a very, very long year for players on the PGA Tour.
With COVID-19 playing havoc on the 2020 PGA Tour spring and summer schedule, there will now be what amounts to a “super season” with a total of six major championships and 50, count ’em, 50 regular events.
“If you’re a golf fan, this is a dream season with more significant events than ever before, including the Olympic Games. Building our schedule is always complicated, but never more so as over the past several months as we continue to navigate challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
So declared The Sheriff Of Nottingham (aka Tour Commish Jay Monahan).
This week’s Tour Championship wraps up the PGA Tour’s 2019-2020 abbreviated season. There’s no rest for the weary as the new season gets under way immediately next week at the Safeway Open. Right after the Safeway comes the first of the six major championships — the 2020 U.S. Open at Winged Foot. The Safeway will be played September 10-13 followed by the trip to Winged Foot, September 17-20.
After that’s it’s one very, very long grind.
You’ve got The Masters in November and there isn’t really much time off this year which should be music to the ears of Sungjae Im, who annually plays in more events than any other player on Tour.
