FORT WORTH, Texas – As baseball and basketball eye a return to competition, the leaders of each league likely spent some time the last four days watching how golf’s return fared at the Charles Schwab Challenge.

There were no positive tests for COVID-19 at the PGA Tour event and even without fans the TV-only product drew record ratings. These were all good signs for other sports looking to resume play, and Tour commissioner Jay Monahan plans to share what the circuit has learned with the other leagues.
