Original title: The Hong Kong Open has been postponed to next year due to the epidemic. There are few events in Asia in 2020
On October 2, Beijing time, affected by the epidemic, the Hong Kong Open on Wednesday was announced to be postponed to next year. This game is not only the oldest professional golf tournament in Asia. It is also a flagship event jointly certified by the European and Asian Tour. This year is the second consecutive year that the Hong Kong Open has been blocked.
The organizer of the event stated in a statement: "In view of the various restrictions brought by the epidemic, the 2020 Hong Kong Open has decided to postpone it to next year." There is no new date for the event originally scheduled for November 26-29.
In 2020, golf tournaments have almost disappeared in Asia. Since the Malaysian Open ended on March 7, the Asian Tour has been suspended. In countries that have been severely affected by the epidemic, such as India, some players have even been unable to train. At the same time, the LPGA Tour has cancelled all seven women's elite tournaments originally scheduled for this year. The PGA Tour has moved the Asian swing event next month from Japan and South Korea to the United States.
The Zozo Championship held from October 22 to 25 last year was transferred from Chiba City near Tokyo to California. Tiger Woods won his 82nd PGA Tour championship here last year, and this year he will fight for the title. From October 15th to 18th, the CJ Cup was transferred from the nine bridges in Jeju Island to the Shadow River in Las Vegas. It is worth mentioning that the HSBC Champions Tournament originally scheduled to be held in Shanghai this year has been cancelled.
Before the suspension of the event in March this year, the 2020 Asian Tour only held 4 games, including the last Hong Kong Open that was postponed from last year to January this year.
