I hope this week’s blog finds you and your families safe and in good health. I have noticed that my hair is greyer, so there may be some Just for Men in my future at the age of 37. I do bring good news, however, and that is news that we have golf on the calendar for 2020. And that has to be nothing but a positive. Here are the confirmed events on the docket for now:
PGA Championship, August 6 – 9 Harding Park
U.S. Open, September 17 – 20 Winged Foot
Ryder Cup, September 22 – 27 Whistling Straits
Masters, November 12 – 15 Augusta National
The British Open will not be played as it has been cancelled altogether, and the Olympics have been moved to 2021. Rumor has it that the PGA Tour will resume at the Memorial in June. No word on whether it will be players and caddies only or if galleries will be permitted to attend.
