Senior US Open at Newport CC is cancelled and it’s a damn shame

“Canceling this year’s Senior Open championships was a very difficult decision to make,” said Davis. “Not only are they important pillars of our championship schedule, but we also value our relationships with both Newport Country Club and Brooklawn Country Club and were looking forward to staging incredible events there this summer. Given the ongoing health and safety issues related to COVID-19 and the significant consolidation of schedules into the back half of 2020, including the postponement of the U.S. Women’s Open and U.S. Open, we felt it necessary to make these unfortunate adjustments to our 2020 championship plans.”

Honestly, this is the most upset I am about a cancellation than all others that have happened in golf. I was planning on going to this and seeing some of the best players in the world play at an amazing course just a few hours away. Newport is one of the best towns in America and a day there watching some amazing golfers would have been a hell of an experience. The planning and preparation that goes into this makes it so unfortunate when they are not able to get the tournament in.
