Amid the continued COVID pandemic, the PGA Tour will remain in the states during its fall wraparound season, and “cancel the entire Asian Swing” for the second consecutive season.
This is according to a PGA Tour source.
“Combo of players – and everyone really (tour staff) – being burned out with extra long season and unknown of where we are with this thing (virus),” the source wrote via text on Thursday evening. “Almost nobody wants to go, particularly China.
“If it does happen, then something was incentivized at the very last minute (read money).”
The three Asian Swing events are: The ZOZO Championship (Japan), The CJ Cup (Korea) and the WGC-HSBC Champions (China).
