Greenbrier Classic Canceled Following Shocking Floods

The PGA Tour has announced the cancellation of the Greenbrier Classic due to the shocking flooding which occurred in West Virginia last week. The annual event was to take place July 7-10 at the Greenbrier Resort’s Old White TPC course in White Sulphur Springs.

Bubba Watson made news this past week with some of his tweets of the flooding.

According to Tour officials, the host course, “suffered extensive damage,” and is “beyond reasonable repair to conduct the tournament.”

Tim Finchem, the PGA Tour Commissioner said that “canceling the Greenbrier Classic is certainly the most prudent course of action,” while offering that the tour’s biggest concern is the “well-being of those who are having to live through this tragic situation.”

According to an AP/ABC News report, “more than 150 players had committed to playing the Greenbrier, which was set to follow the World Golf Championship-Bridgestone Invitational” this coming weekend.
