THE US Open, originally scheduled to take place from June 18-21, will now be held from September 17-20 at New York’s Winged Foot Golf Club to become one of the latest sporting events to be canceled this year amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“We are hopeful that postponing the championship will offer us the opportunity to mitigate health and safety issues while still providing us with the best opportunity to conduct the US Open this year,” said Mike Davis, chief executive of the United States Golf Association.
“We are incredibly thankful to the membership and staff at Winged Foot for their flexibility and support. We are also grateful for the wonderful collaboration among the professional tours and other majors in working through a complicated schedule.”
