As international-travel restrictions ease, tour commissioner hopes to play 10-12 events by end of year
Announced: By the Asian Tour, a restart to the season in September, the tour said Sunday in a news release. The Shinhan Donghae Open, to be played Sept. 10-13 in Incheon, South Korea, is expected to be the first Asian Tour event since the season was suspended in early March because of the coronavirus pandemic. Only three tournaments were listed on the tour’s revised schedule, but commissioner Minn Thant Cho hopes to play 10-12 events by the end of the year, provided that international-travel restrictions loosen up. “It is encouraging to see the gradual relaxation of social-distancing measures throughout the globe,” Cho said. “The return to action of several major sports organizations and leagues, although without fans in attendance, has given all of us a huge uplift in many respects.”
