With no positive COVID-19 tests, PGA Tour to share strategy with other leagues

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.

“I’ve heard from some of my peers, and I think as I mentioned as we go forward, we will share everything that we’ve learned and how we’re applying our protocols, and I would imagine some of those calls will happen over the next several days,” Monahan said.

Before play began on Thursday, the Tour administered

Daniel Berger wins Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial as PGA Tour returns

Daniel Berger was playing some of the best golf that no one noticed. Three months away because of the COVID-19 pandemic didn’t slow his momentum, and he made it pay off Sunday with a victory at Colonial.

The PGA Tour made a healthy return to golf at the Charles Schwab Challenge with a somewhat sickly finish. Berger saved par from behind the 17th green on the first playoff hole and won when Collin Morikawa missed a 3-foot par putt.

Berger closed with a 4-under 66, his 28th consecutive round at par or better dating to Oct. 11 at the Houston Open.

Even over the final hour, a half-dozen players were still in the mix. All that was missing was the sound and energy of a gallery, with the PGA Tour not allowing spectators for the opening five events in its return.

Berger won for the third time — all victories

The criticism eventually led her to take a break from social media.

LPGA Tour to return on July 31

The LPGA Tour is to return on July 31, more than five months after the season was halted due to the coronavirus crisis.

Since Inbee Park won the Australian Open in February, the Tour has been suspended amid the proliferation of COVID-19.

After a long wait, a new three-day event called the Drive On Championship at Inverness Club in Toledo will herald the return of competitive women’s golf.

Another tournament will be held in Ohio the following week as the rescheduled Marathon LPGA Classic takes place at Highland Meadows Golf Club in Sylvania from August 6.

“Thanks in part to the generosity of our partners who could not reschedule their events in 2020, we are adding a valuable additional playing opportunity for our LPGA Tour members,” said LPGA commissioner Mike Whan.

Earlier this month, the Tour announced that the Evian Championship, one of its five majors, will not take place
