The PGA Championship was postponed on Tuesday, leaving the status of the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship at Harbor Shores uncertain.
The PGA of America announced the postponement of the PGA Championship, scheduled from May 14-17 at Harding Park in San Francisco, due to the coronavirus outbreak. It also said in a news release that it was “discussing the best options” for the Senior PGA Championship, which is set for May 21-24 at Harbor Shores. The local course has hosted the event in late May in even-numbered years since 2012.
“We hope to have an update in the near future and sincerely appreciate the patience of our wonderful volunteers, fans, supporters and our partners at KitchenAid,” the news release said. “The health and safety of all involved in this prestigious championship is our highest priority.”
All events on the PGA Tour Champions prior to the Senior PGA Championship have been postponed. Senior PGA Championship director Ryan Ogle said that while the tournament is currently outside the date range chosen for postponement, health officials will continue to be consulted on the best course of action.
