91-day dormancy ends on PGA Tour

Tour returns from 3-month suspension as 37 of world’s top 50 players, including top 5, headline strong Colonial field

91: Number of days since the PGA Tour last played a competitive round, the longest stretch since the end of World War II, as the season resumes Thursday after the coronavirus- induced shutdown. Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas, will be the site of the Charles Schwab Challenge as 37 of the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Ranking, including the top five, lead the Tour’s return (tee times). The PGA Tour, which shut down March 12 after the first round of the Players Championship, has revised its schedule after a wave of tournament cancellations and new dates. Colonial will be the first of five events that will ban fans and limit the on-course personnel.
