The PGA TOUR made the announcement on March 17 that due to the ongoing health crisis related to COVID-19, all PGA TOUR events through the week of the AT&T Byron Nelson (May 7-10) have been canceled. Furthermore, the PGA of America has postponed the PGA Championship (May 14-17) for a date later this year, to be announced.
UPDATED: MARCH 24, 2020
Please find below an update from the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide regarding operational elements related to COVID-19 and the annual setup of the Memorial.
First and foremost, the health and safety of everyone associated with the Memorial Tournament and our community remains our No. 1 priority as we navigate the ongoing health crisis related to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide announced on March 18th that, working closely with the PGA TOUR and Nationwide and constantly reviewing this obviously very fluid situation, the Tournament – after monitoring information provided by the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control along with local and state government health agencies – is at this time proceeding with the planning tied to hosting the 45th playing of the Memorial.
As a result, and due to the operational set-up time required to stage a PGA TOUR event, the delivery of certain equipment is scheduled to begin arriving to our facility this week. Please note that these materials are being delivered and stored for the time being. The on-course build-out of the Tournament has been delayed, including the installation of the perimeter fence, until an undetermined date. That timing will continually be monitored and adjusted, as needed, over the coming weeks.
As always, we encourage our fans to stay informed on the developments of the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 through official sources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website (cdc.gov) and coronavirus.ohio.gov. We will provide further updates as new information becomes available.
