The PGA Tour has replaced the John Deere Classic with an event that will be played July 9 to 12 at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio. At least the first five events are slated to be without spectators, including the new event at Muirfield Village.

The tournament would be held without fans July 9-12 and would be followed by the Memorial Tournament, which will be played the following weekend with an expanded field due to cancelation of the British Open.

The replacement event will be title sponsored by Workday, which already backs multiple top golfers.

Next week, the tour returns to action after a 13-week absence because of the coronavirus pandemic.

His content will still be fully accessible to the public, so his followers and those searching for his account can still see it. Snap made this decision over the weekend. "They view you as a deplorable and they do not want you to exist on their platform".

The new tournament will be a full-field event consisting of the standard 156 players and will be contested without spectators.

The Memorial Tournament is scheduled for the week after the new tournament in Columbus.

The John Deere Classic was canceled after state restrictions in IL prohibited fans from attending and the tournament director decided it wouldn't be worth hosting the event without spectators. The PGA Tour will resume with the Charles Schwab Challenge from June 11 to 14 at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas.
