Pending Hurricane Cancels Championship, Top 25 Win Tour Cards


The PGA Tour has announced the cancellation of the Tour Championship due to the threat of Hurricane Matthew. The first round of the championship was scheduled to tee off tomorrow, October 6th.

The city of Jacksonville has called for an evacuation of the area surrounding Atlantic Beach Country Club.

“It is unfortunate that we’ve had to cancel our season-ending event; however, our first priority is the safety of our players, fans, volunteers and staff,” said Tour President Bill Calfee. “With Hurricane Matthew on the horizon, it is critical that we make sure everyone involved with the Tour Championship has ample time to evacuate the Northeast Florida area and return home.”

With the tournament canceled, the Top 25 through three events of the Tour Finals will receive 2016-17 PGA Tour cards.
