LPGA Shanghai tournament canceled over coronavirus

The LPGA Tour yesterday canceled its Shanghai tournament after China said it will not hold most international sporting events this year because of the novel coronavirus.

LPGA Shanghai, won last year by American world No. 2 Danielle Kang, had been scheduled for October 15-18 but has been scratched “given the current health concerns and significant travel restrictions,” the tour said in a statement. “(We) very much look forward to returning to Qizhong Garden Golf Club, Shanghai, in 2021.” It now appears inevitable that the men’s prestigious World Golf Championship-HSBC Champions, due to take place two weeks later in Shanghai, will also be cancelled. The LPGA 2020 season was shut down in February after just four events, two in Florida and two in Australia. It teed off again two weeks ago with back-to-back events, without crowds, in Ohio, both won by Kang.
