Due to the unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and the continued uncertainty surrounding it, the 2020 U.S. Senior Open Championship and U.S. Senior Women's Open Championship will be canceled.
The 41st U.S. Senior Open had been scheduled for June 25-28 at Newport (R.I.) Country Club. The 41st edition of the championship will now be played at Omaha (Neb.) Country Club from July 8-11, 2021.
The 3rd U.S. Senior Women’s Open, which was scheduled to take place July 9-12 at Brooklawn Country Club in Fairfield, Conn., will not be conducted this year. More information about future sites and dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
“Canceling this year’s Senior Open championships was a very difficult decision to make,” said Mike Davis, CEO of the USGA. “Not only are they important pillars of our championship schedule, but we also value our relationships with both Newport Country Club and Brooklawn Country Club and were looking forward to staging incredible events there this summer. Given the ongoing health and safety issues related to COVID-19 and the significant consolidation of schedules into the back half of 2020, including the postponement of the U.S. Women’s Open and U.S. Open, we felt it necessary to make these unfortunate adjustments to our 2020 championship plans.”
The U.S. Open, scheduled for June 18-21 at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y., has been rescheduled for Sept. 17-20 at Winged Foot. The U.S. Women's Open was rescheduled from June 4-7 at Champions Golf Club in Houston, Texas, to Dec. 10-13 at Champions G.C.
