A Professional Golf Season Unlike Any Other 0

Posted on September 08, 2020 by Dean Hybl

Now that the PGA has wrapped up an abbreviated 2019-2020 schedule, they are preparing to immediately begin a 2020-2021 season that will be unlike no other.

The jam-packed season will feature 50 FedEx Cup Tournaments, including 14 events that were postponed or canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It marks the most tournaments in a single season since 1975.

In addition, there will be a total of six majors on the schedule, with the U.S. Open (September 14-20) and the Masters (November 12-15) completing their 2020 events and then hosting their 2021 events at their traditional time.

Unlike those of us who are able to take time and enjoy a relaxing round of golf with a cool product like a Sunday Golf Bag, there will be no rest for the weary as the PGA professionals are beginning the 2020-2021 season just three days after the end of the 2019-2020 season.

The first event of the new season is teeing off in Napa, California with the Safeway Open from September 10-13.

Following right behind is the first of six majors on the schedule with the 2020 U.S. Open being played at Winged Foot Golf Club in New York.

While the 2020-2021 schedule is a full one, it does not include the Ryder Cup, which was originally scheduled for September 25-27, 2020 at Whistling Straits Golf Course in Wisconsin will now take place on September 24-26, 2021.
