Like most professional sporting competitions around the world, the PGA Tour had a forced hiatus due to coronavirus. The entire schedule has been pushed back, including all four major tournaments.
When is the Charles Schwab Challenge?
The Charles Schwab Challenge follows the traditional format of four rounds of golf from Thursday to Sunday in the US. That equates to Friday 12 June to Monday 15 June Australian time. The first 2 rounds will be broadcast from 6am–9am AEST, with the final 2 rounds shown from 3am–8am AEST. There will be no spectators in attendance and social distancing protocols will be used.
