PGA TOUR Cancels Valspar Championship
For Immediate Release: March 13, 2020
On Thursday night, the PGA TOUR announced that it was cancelling the 2020 Valspar Championship, scheduled to be played next week, as well as the in-progress THE PLAYERS Championship and other PGA TOUR-sanctioned events through at least the first week in April.
“The last 48 hours have been a whirlwind,” says Tournament Director Tracy West. “While we understand and support the TOUR’s decision and have safety as our utmost priority, we still are gutted for our fans, volunteers and community. So much work by so many people goes into staging a tournament. We had a fantastic field with four of the top eight players in the world going up against our two-time champion Paul Casey and so many other top players. Ticket sales were strong, we had two great acts for our Saturday Valspar LIVE concert in Chris Young and Big & Rich, the weather report looks great. So we do have regrets about a lost opportunity.
“But in the bigger scheme of things, we are so proud to be part of the PGA TOUR, to have a great sponsor in Valspar and a wonderful base of other sponsors, vendors and volunteers. Valspar’s title sponsorship is rock solid through 2025 and we are excited about the potential for an even better tournament next year.”
