Hong Kong Open postponed amid social unrest

The Hong Kong Open has been postponed because of violent unrest in the Chinese city, the Asian Tour and European Tour said yesterday.

The 60th anniversary edition of the tournament had been scheduled to be played from November 28 to December 1. “An attempt will be made to reschedule the tournament to early 2020,” the European Tour and its partner Asian Tour said in a joint statement. “The decision has been taken due to the ongoing level of social unrest in Hong Kong,” European Tour chief executive Keith Pelley said. “As the safety of our players, staff, stakeholders and everyone involved in each and every one of our tournaments around the world is our top priority, we feel this is the correct, but unfortunate, course of action.” Pelley had said earlier this month the tournament would not be affected as the Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling was far from the city center.
