Rescheduled PGA Professional Championship Cancelled Over Austin COVID-19 Surge, Travel Restrictions
Unfortunate news for the top PGA of America professionals in the U.S. who have seen their annual championship rescheduled and now, cancelled.
Set for Austin in late July, with the top 20 going to the PGA Championship in San Francisco and the top 3 recently announced as U.S. Open exemptions, it’s both a shame and also an eye-opener for August’s championship given the mention of travel restrictions.
The news was emailed to PGA members. Ron Mintz posted the sad news:
The PGA of America announced on Monday that it has canceled the PGA Professional Championship.

“With the health and well-being of our PGA Members, volunteers, rules officials and staff serving as our guiding principles throughout this effort, recent COVID-19 surges in the area and various travel restrictions made our collective pursuit prohibitive.” 2 of 2— Ron Mintz (@MintzGolf) June 30, 2020
