NCAA grants college golfers an extra year

After spring sports were shut down because of coronavirus, governing body OKs extra year of eligibility for all spring athletes, including men’s and women’s golfers

Granted: By the NCAA, an extra year of eligibility for college golfers after the spring season was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic, the association announced Friday. The move was part of an effort to grant relief to athletes in all spring sports, including men’s and women’s golf. Seniors who might have been planning to turn professional after the NCAA Championship this spring could go pro even earlier, except for the fact that virtually all tournaments worldwide have been canceled or postponed for at least the next month. Details about the eligibility relief are expected soon. The NCAA Division I men’s and women’s tournaments were scheduled to be played in consecutive weeks at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz.: the women on May 22-27 and the men on May 29-June 3.
