Swine Flu Delays Mexico Tournament

April 28, 2009

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- The Nationwide Tour has postponed the Mexico Open golf tournament scheduled for May 21-24 because of the swine flu outbreak.

Nationwide Tour president Bill Calfee says it will be rescheduled for later in the year.

The Mexico Open was to be played at El Bosque Golf Club in Leon, located about 200 miles northwest of Mexico City.

"A significant number of lives have been lost in Mexico, which is tragic," Calfee said. "There are more important things for people to focus on at the moment."

The Mexico Open, first played in 1944, is jointly sanctioned by the Nationwide Tour and the Mexican Golf Federation.
