The LPGA Tour has canceled the 2020 Senior LPGA Championship, tournament officials announced on Friday.
The tournament was set to be held at French Lick Resort in French Lick, Indiana from July 30 to August 1.
The tournament will be moved to 2021, with dates to be announced at a later time.
LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan released the following statement:
“Cancelling ANY golf event is a difficult and painful decision. We are extremely thankful for the support and flexibility from French Lick Resort and the Legends Tour during this trying time.
Importantly, all of us are committed to this important senior women’s tradition, and we cannot wait to watch the women legends of the game tee it up once again in 2021.”
Dave Harner, Director of Golf Operations at French Lick Resort added:
“These legendary players deserve nothing less than a first-class Championship, and with the current circumstances, our first and foremost concern is for the safety and well-being of the players, the sponsors, the spectators and our staff.
It has become more and more evident that we would not be able to conduct the event to its usual and deserved standard, therefore, we feel cancelling is the best decision. We look forward to 2021 with an even bigger and better fourth Senior LPGA Championship!”
