  • 2020 British Open canceled amid coronavirus pandemic

    For the first time since World War II, The Open Championship will not be played

    One of four is down. The 2020 Open Championship has been canceled because of the coronavius pandemic that has swept across the world. This year's Open, which was supposed to be the 149th edition of the tournament, was to be played at Royal St. George's from July 16-19. The event has been rescheduled for July 15-18 in 2021 at the same location.

    This bumps the 150th edition of the tournament at St. Andrews from 2021 to 2022, and it represents just the fourth occasion the Open has been canceled since it started in 1860. The 1871 Open was also canceled, and the event skipped 11 years of play because of World War I and World War II.

    "Our absolute priority is to protect the health and safety of the fans, players, officials, volunteers and staff involved in The Open," R&A CEO Martin Slumbers said. "We care deeply about this historic championship and have made this decision with a heavy heart. We appreciate that this will be disappointing for a great many people around the world but we have to act responsibly during this pandemic and it is the right thing to do.

    "I can assure everyone that we have explored every option for playing The Open this year, but it is not going to be possible."

    This is the first of the four major championships to officially be canceled, and it comes on a Monday that's supposed to be the start of Masters week here in the United State. The Masters has been indefinitely postponed.

    With the Open domino falling, it is expected that a more formal global golf schedule for the rest of 2020 will be released at some point this week, and it may still include the other three major championships.

    The PGA Championship -- originally to be played in May -- has also been indefinitely postponed. No formal announcement has been made about the U.S. Open in June, which is slated to be played at Winged Foot in New York. Both events are now expected to have a late summer or early fall date.

      All private and public golf courses shut down in the land of fruits and nuts - Calif.

      God, the panic within the Dems, MSM, and left must be horrifying...realizing that Joe is really the best they've got.

        You mean they're not closed in the other States. Well done California for taking a lead on this.

          "I've gotten to the point where I feel that we've gone too far in playing it safe against the Coronavirus. Don't get me wrong. Some caution and personal responsibility are a good thing. But we are creating millions of people who sit at home shivering in fear as they lose their jobs, fitness, socialization and savings. There is a tremendous societal cost to this with the resulting addiction, suicide, hopelessness and isolation. These are harder to quantify but calls to suicide lines are up 3x. Read up on plasma and hydroxychloroquine. Great early results, and Cuomo said this morning that 20% of the ventilators in NY are sitting idle not being used. Most of us won't get it and if we do we won't know. If we DO get it, likely we'll get better. Listen to me. I'm not saying this is nothing. Never have. But you "all or nothings" out there have to realize there is a balance point here. 25% of small business people tell US Chamber they're on the verge of closing for good."

          I reckon it's gone a little over the top.

            ^ A good 9 to 12 months in isolation will do everyone the world of good, however in saying that I'm still working. We're still getting our supplies out of Taiwan and the USA. A few small delays getting equipment from Taiwan but the equipment from America has seen zero delay

            We do a lot of domestic sales to 'essential' industry so they will always be placing orders and of course they now have a vested interest in breaking that 'buy everything from China' nonsense so that's all good for our company

                Better than auto-projecting a self-inflicted "miserable, disillusioned, tedious rut" and inability to be professional onto others LOL
