COVID-19 has impacted sports in so many ways and the PGA Tour is no exception. It had to cancel over 14 events this spring and now even as the sport returns, it will be under very different conditions. The current plan is to return without fans for an extended period of time, and with intensive testing and precautions for players. Instead of the usual crowd of 30,000 to 70,000 at an event, upcoming events could now garner crowds of just professional players and crews of only 800. This is the new world of sports in 2020.
