This Week's LPGA Event Gets Shortened

The continuing story of 2020 troubles strikes again. The wildfires in the Pacific Northwest of the US have caused the LPGA to shorten this week's event to 54 holes.

According to the report at, the course at Columbia Edgewater Country Club in Portland OR was still closed on Tuesday, the press conferences were cancelled and the Wednesday pro-am has been cancelled as well. Heather Daly-Donofrio, the LPGA’s Chief Tour Operations Officer, says their meteorologist doesn't expect air quality to improve before midday on Thursday so the Tour won't risk exposing anybody involved with the event to yet another health problem.

The current plan is for a three-round event this weekend, Friday-Sunday. GC's coverage will be tape-delayed, starting Friday night at 9pm ET.

2020 will definitely go down in history as a bummer of a year. This is just one more thing to add to the list.
