The PGA TOUR made an announcement on Tuesday (March 17) that due to the ongoing health crisis, the PGA TOUR has canceled events through the AT&T Byron Nelson (May 7-10). Furthermore, the PGA of America is postponing the PGA Championship (May 14-17) for a date TBD 2020. As a result, our 2020 Huntsville Championship tournament scheduled for April 20-26 will not occur as planned in April.
This is obviously a very fluid situation that requires constant review, communication and transparency, and we are dedicated to all three aspects. Our team is united in our commitment to holding the very best Huntsville Championship. Together with the PGA TOUR and Knight Eady, the Huntsville Championship will continue to monitor information provided by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, local government health agencies and Alabama’s leading medical providers and offer regular status updates over the coming weeks regarding the future status of our event. The health and safety of our spectators, players, sponsors, volunteers, employees and all associated with the tournament is and will continue to be our No. 1 priority.
We appreciate your patience as our team works through the options for what this looks like for you as a supporter of this event, and we thank all of our tournament sponsors, volunteers and ticket buyers for their continued support as we navigate this unprecedented situation.
We encourage you all to stay informed on the developments of the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 through official sources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website (cdc.gov) and alabamapublichealth.gov/.
