(KPIX) — The 2020 PGA Championship will reportedly take place at Harding Park in San Francisco beginning August 6th without fans. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the PGA of America is set to make an official announcement tomorrow.
Originally scheduled for May, the event was moved to the fall because of pandemic concerns. KPIX golf analyst John Abendroth said the PGA of America was waiting to make a decision on Harding Park until seeing how the tournament in Fort Worth, Texas went this weekend.READ MORE: At Least 1 Killed in Moss Landing After Vehicle Plunges Into Old Salinas River

Harding Park has been open to public golf play since early May, but will eventually close for tournament preparations. Abendroth speculated that would happen 2-3 weeks before the event.
