The 2020 US PGA Championship has been postponed.

The second men’s major championship had been scheduled to take place at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco from May 14-17.

However, organisers confirmed this evening that it has been put off due to the spread of the coronavirus epidemic.

“Throughout our evaluation process, we have been committed to following the guidance of public health authorities and given the coronavirus shelter-in-place order in effect in San Francisco, postponement is the best decision for all involved,” said PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh.

“This is a reflection of a thoughtful process. “We are and have been working in concert with Commissioner Jay Monahan and our partners and friends at the PGA TOUR to find an alternative date that works for all. We are all very hopeful for a great outcome.
