The United States Golf Association (USGA) has announced this Wednesday that there will be no spectators at the 120 US Open, one of the four majors on the calendar and that it will be played in September.

"Due to continuing health and safety concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic and in consultation with New York State, the USGA will hold the 120th US Open September 14-20 at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck (New York) without spectators, "says the USGA. The tournament was to be played from June 18 to 21, but had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"After months of consultation and scenario planning with state and local health officials, we have jointly decided that holding the US Open without spectators will provide the best opportunity to safely conduct the championship for all involved," he says. Mike Davis, head of the USGA on the agency's official website "We will miss the excitement of the fans and what their presence brings to the championship. We are looking forward to welcoming them again to the future US Open," he adds.

Due to the pandemic, the British Open had to be permanently canceled in its 2020 edition, and both the US Open, the PGA Championship and the Masters were postponed. The PGA will be played from August 6 to 9 and the Masters, from November 12 to 15.
