The EuroPro Tour has pulled the plug on its 2020 season as the uncertainty around COVID-19 continues.
Sporting calendars around the globe have been devastated by the impact of Coronavirus in recent weeks, much like every industry and walk of life, and the EuroPro Tour have decided to get ahead of potential trouble down the road by acting fast and cancelling this year’s Tour.
A statement read:
“With the recent developments of Covid-19, the PGA EuroPro Tour and Matchroom Sport have decided to cancel the 2020 schedule and season.
This incorporates all events and Q School. All memberships and Q School entries will be refunded. We will be looking at the possibility of organising some events later in the year once the threat of the Coronavirus has been subsided, however, in the meantime, there are no plans for golf in 2020.
Please keep a close eye on www.europrotour.com for any developments.
Our thoughts are with everybody affected by the Covid-19 outbreak at this difficult time.
Tour CEO, Dan Godding”
The news will come as further blow to satellite tour players trying to make their way in the game after both the ALPS Tour and MENA Tour postponed their calendars.
Sadly, at this time there are bigger things than golf to worry about but hopefully this will all pass over soon and golfers around the world can get back to what they do best. Golf.
