U.S. Open to be played with no fans in attendance
Due to the ongoing impact of the global Covid-19 pandemic, as a safety measure no fans will be in attendance at this year's U.S. Open.
The 2020 U.S. Open will be played with no fans in attendance due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The United States Golf Association (USGA) announced the move on Wednesday, with the PGA Tour season having restarted last month.
The USA has seen more than 4.5 million confirmed cases of COVID-19, with the death toll exceeding 153,000.
"Following months of consultation and scenario planning with local and state health officials, we have jointly decided that hosting the U.S. Open without spectators will provide the best opportunity to conduct the championship safely for all involved," USGA chief executive Mike Davis said.
Due to ongoing health and safety concerns from the COVID-19 pandemic and in consultation with the state of New York, the USGA will conduct the 120th U.S. Open Championship on Sept. 14-20 at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y., without on-site spectators.— USGA (@USGA) July 29, 2020
"We will miss the excitement of the fans and what their presence brings to the championship. We look forward to welcoming them again to future U.S. Opens."
The U.S. Open is due to be held at Winged Foot Golf Club in New York starting on September 17.
