The Associated Press reports that talks have begun to relocate 3 fall tournaments from South Korea, Japan and China to America
Reported: By the Associated Press’ golf writer, Doug Ferguson, that the PGA Tour is discussing a move of its three-tournament Asia Swing in the fall to the U.S. West Coast. One week after China announced that because of the global coronavirus pandemic it was canceling virtually all sports events except trials related to the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, the Tour is looking for ways to move its tournaments in South Korea, Japan and China to America, according to the AP report, which cited multiple unnamed sources. The events – CJ Cup at Nine Bridges on Oct. 15-18, Zozo Championship on Oct. 22-25 and the WGC HSBC Champions on Oct. 29-Nov. 1 are among eight events played between the U.S. Open and the Masters on the Tour’s revised schedule. Among the possibilities, the Zozo Championship, which Tiger Woods won last year, could move to Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif., the former site of Woods’ annual World Challenge elite 18-man event. The Tour has been playing annually in Asia since 2009.
