Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has approved a plan to allow a limited number of spectators to attend the PGA Tour’s Memorial Tournament next month.
The Memorial – which will be staged at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, on July 16-19 – is scheduled to be the first event on the men’s golf circuit to allow fans in the wake of the global Covid-19 pandemic. More details are expected in the coming week.
The PGA Tour said in a statement: “The news announced today by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine is a very positive step for the PGA Tour and the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide as it relates to a phased approach in re-introducing a limited number of on-site fans and guests. We very much look forward to the return of spectators on a limited basis at the Memorial Tournament.”
The PGA Tour returns next week with the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas.
