Concerns over the spread of the COVID-19 virus have caused the cancellation or postponement of sporting events throughout the world. Domestic sports leagues such as the NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS and ATP Tour, along with the NCAA, have all shut down competition for the foreseeable future in an effort to help slow down the spread of the virus and protect the health of the athletes, officials, spectators and volunteers.

The same is occurring in the world of golf. Below is a listing of all the major professional and amateur events that have been either canceled or postponed over the coronavirus. We’ll update this list as more events are impacted.

JUNIORS
AJGA -- Postponed all events until Memorial Day


• The USGA announced on March 17 that while monitoring the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization, "We will continue to hold the dates for the 2020 U.S. Women's Open at Champions Golf Club and the 2020 U.S. Open at Winged Foot Golf Club." However, all local qualifiers for both championships have been canceled. "In conjunction with our Allied Golf Association (AGA) partners and International Federations, (we) will look to redesign qualifying going forward as events unfold," the USGA said in a statement.

Sources have told Golf Digest, however, that the USGA is expecting to postpone the championship until later in the year. The hope is to still hold the event at Winged Foot, but that alternative venues, including Oakmont and Pinehurst, are also being explored.

• Sources have told Golf Digest that the R&A is planning to cancel the Open Championship. An announcement is expected to come as soon as April 2.
