LPGA Tour announces revised summer and fall schedule; several events with new dates



With the global pro golf schedule in a state of constant flux the last month, the major tours have been trying to figure out a way forward, looking toward a time when tournament golf can again be played safely -- even without fans in attendance.

In response, the LPGA has drawn up a revised 2020 LPGA Tour schedule that reflects the realities of returning to golf no sooner than June, while rescheduling some tournaments that had already been postponed.

The earliest the season would resume is June 19-21, with the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship in Rogers, Ark. Events would run on their normal schedule through July, until the end of the month when two rescheduled events, the ShopRite LPGA Classic and Evian Championship are slotted in new dates.

After the CP Women's Open to start September, the rest of the month will feature rescheduled West Coast events, starting with the ANA Inspiration, which is typically the first major on the golf calendar.

The fall Asian swing could face changes, but those have not been confirmed or announced.

The season will then end with two events in Florida -- the inaugural and rescheduled Pelican Women's Championship, followed by the CME Group Tour Championship -- before the US Women's Open is played in its rescheduled slot in December in Houston.
