Will we have sports in June? The PGA is planning on it!

Is this real life? Is this the light at the end of the tunnel? Is this the re-birth of civilization? If you believe anything Golf Digest has to say, it is.

According to Golf Digest, “PGA Tour officials are expected to announce this week their intention to resume the tour season, halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, on June 11-14 at the Charles Schwab Challenge”.

This is huge and amazing news!

Golf is obviously a sport that doesn’t require close contact with one another, and it appears that the PGA is prepared to safely hold these events, not just for the golfers, but the staff required to hold these events and they are “fully prepared” to hold these events without fans in attendance if necessary.

Here is the proposed immediate schedule:

June 25-28: Travelers Championship, TPC River Highlands, Cromwell, Conn.
Keeps original date

July 2-5: Rocket Mortgage Classic, Detroit Golf Club
Moves from May 28-31

July 9-12: John Deere Classic, TPC Deere Run, Silvis, Ill.
Keeps original date

July 16-19: Memorial Tournament, Muirfield Village G.C., Dublin, Ohio
Moves from June 4-7

July 23-26: 3M Open, TPC Twin Cities, Blaine, Minn.
Keeps original date

July 30-Aug. 2: WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, TPC Southwind, Memphis
Moves from July 2-5

July 30-Aug. 2: Barracuda Championship, Tahoe Mt. Club, Truckee, Calif.
Moves from July 2-5

While golf is probably the most boring sport on Earth to watch, I know many, myself included, would love to have some sort of live sport on TV (provided it is safe) to watch to give us some kind of sanity back.
