Gov. Greg Abbott allows professional sports to restart beginning May 31 in the Lone Star State, but without fans
Cleared: By the state of Texas, the PGA Tour’s return to competition beginning next month in Fort Worth. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott gave the OK for professional sports to resume play beginning May 31 in the Lone Star State, though he banned spectators because of social-distancing concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic. The PGA Tour is scheduled to end a three-month hiatus with the Charles Schwab Challenge on June 11-14 at Colonial Country Club. In July, the developmental Korn Ferry Tour is scheduled to play two consecutive tournaments at TPC San Antonio. Abbott’s announcement Monday came on the same day that the governors of California and New York also began to pave the way for a resumption of sports in their states. The PGA Championship is scheduled for Aug. 6-9 at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, one of three upcoming events in California on the PGA Tour’s revised 2020 schedule. The U.S. Open is set for Sept. 17-20 at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y.
