European Tour to resume

The European Tour, suspended since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will resume with the British Masters on July 22 as part of a six-tournament run in the United Kingdom, the tour’s governing body said yesterday. Events will take place without fans in attendance and strict health protocols in place. The British Masters, hosted by player Lee Westwood at Close House Golf Club, will be followed by the English Open from July 30-August 2 at the Marriott Forest of Arden and the English Championship from August 6-9 at Marriott Hanbury Manor. The Celtic Manor Resort in Newport will host back-to-back tournaments — the Celtic Classic (August 13-16) and the Wales Open (August 20-23) — before the UK Championship at The Belfry from August 27-30. “We have consistently said that safety is our priority and that is why today we are announcing our resumption in two months’ time,” said European Tour Chief Executive Keith Pelley in a statement. Dates for four Rolex Series events have also been announced, beginning with the Scottish Open at the Renaissance Club from October 8-11 and ending with the World Tour Championship in Dubai from December 10-13. The PGA Championship will take place from October 15-18 at England’s Wentworth Club.
