WILL Super League and remaining professional football calendars go the same way as golf championships?

England Golf has updated and extended its list of postponed championships to now include all events up until week commencing July 27, 2020.

The governing body says priority when taking decisions at this time is to assist the national effort to combat the threat of the Covid-19 outbreak and ensure we protect our NHS and save lives.

With golf courses now closed until further notice and restrictions for travel and public life in place for an indefinite period, England Golf has taken the pragmatic decision on the postponement of events beyond the original date of June 7.

James Crampton, director of championships, said: “It is with regret that we have had to extend the list of postponed England Golf events as we all adhere to the expert advice and necessary measures now in place to combat the spread of coronavirus.

“All England Golf championships have now been postponed until week commencing 27 July. We will continue to regularly review our championship plans beyond this date.

“If possible, we aim to re-schedule some of our postponed events and will provide information as and when it is practicable to do so.

“There are a number of intricacies associated with championship golf which need to be considered well in advance of any event taking place and these, as much as golf courses being open for play, are key factors in our decision-making.”
