Fan Information: 2020 U.S. Open

Given the recent CDC guidance and the evolving dynamics of the Coronavirus pandemic, the USGA announced that it has canceled local (first stage) qualifying for the 2020 U.S. Open and qualifying for the 2020 U.S. Women's Open in their current forms, and in conjunction with our Allied Golf Association (AGA) partners and International Federations, will look to redesign qualifying going forward as events unfold. We will continue to hold the dates for the 2020 U.S. Open at Winged Foot Golf Club, while the 2020 U.S. Women's Open at Champions Golf Club, in Houston, Texas, has been rescheduled and will now take place Dec. 10-13.

At this time, it is premature to speculate what might occur with other 2020 USGA championships. We will continue to monitor all available guidance and regulations from the CDC, WHO and other federal, state and local authorities to do what is in the best interests of our community. We appreciate everyone's understanding and support during these unprecedented times. 

In the event that any of our championships are canceled or conducted without on-site attendance, we will refund our customers.
