Focus shifts toward preserving major championships, Ryder Cup
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, tournament golf has undergone a massive suspension worldwide during the past month.
Only a few satellite tours have scheduled tournaments in recent weeks.
With the cancellation of the Players Championship after the first round March 12, the PGA Tour and other major professional tours put their seasons on hold. In recent days, the 2020 tournament schedules have started to re-form, with a focus on the major championships and the Ryder Cup for the men.
