What's the status of the four men's major championships?
The status of the four men's majors is obviously in some doubt at this point.
The Masters Tournament has been postponed by Augusta National Golf Club, with hopes of contesting the 2020 version of the tournament at some point during the year. The club has a contingency plan to play the Masters in October, perhaps November, but the club has yet to announce firm dates for the tournament.
The PGA Championship was set to be played May 14-17 at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, but the event has been postponed to a date "later in the summer." San Francisco and six surrounding counties ordering residents to shelter in place for three weeks. The CDC has also recommended no public gatherings of 50 or more people for eight weeks, ending May 10.
The US Open is still set to be played as scheduled. However, the USGA has already said publicly that it will follow CDC guidelines and that will impact the qualifying tournaments -- local and potentially final - for the US Open. The USGA will formulate a plan and announce it in due course after cancelling the local qualifiers as set forth.
The British Open Championship is still set for July, with no updates so far on potential date changes, postponement or cancellation.
