The 2020 Masters Tournament has been postponed due to the threat of coronavirus. The Masters has been postponed due to 'ever-increasing risks associated with the widespread Coronavirus COVID-19'. It was set to begin on April 9.
It is with regret that we are announcing the cancellation of THE PLAYERS Championship. We have also decided to cancel all PGA TOUR events – across all of our Tours – in the coming weeks, through the Valero Texas Open.
"I'm just so proud right now of the way I played in the play-off," - Jorge Campillo.
Jorge Campillo defeated David Drysdale in a play-off to win his second European Tour title at the 2020 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. The Spaniard held a two shot lead with two holes to play but a double bogey on the 17th dropped him back to 13 under and we went to extra holes for the second week in a row.

Tiger Woods, a two-time winner of THE PLAYERS Championship, announced via agent Mark Steinberg on Friday he will not tee it up at next week’s tournament at the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. Woods personally informed PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan of the decision before news broke on Friday. "Back just not ready," Steinberg said in a statement, as per ESPN and Golf Digest. "Nothing concerning, just not ready."
"I will still be a little nervous but hopefully tomorrow I can play as good as today and win,” - Jorge Campillo.
Jorge Campillo carded a third round 67 to take a one shot lead into the final day of the 2020 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. The Spaniard started the day in a share of the lead and picked up five shots in six holes around the turn to move three ahead and into a commanding position at Education City Golf Club.
"I just didn't have a clue where it was going," - Tyrrell Hatton.
Tyrrell Hatton lost his swing on his back nine without losing his head, a small victory. He battled through a tough test at Bay Hill on Friday and was only surprised by what he saw when he finished. His tidy short game was strong enough to carry him into a share of the lead with Sung Kang going into the weekend at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard.
Tristen Strydom carded a six-under-par 66 final round of the Final Stage of Qualifying School to back up his round three 62 and win the final stage on a total of 19-under-par at Houghton Golf Club on Thursday. He fought off challenges from numerous players in the final round, including PH McIntyre who settled for second place, with the duo of Luke Brown and Rupert Kaminski also not far off.
Jorge Campillo and Andy Sullivan shared the lead heading into the weekend at the 2020 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters but they had a host of European Tour winners breathing down their necks at Education City Golf Club.
Rory McIlroy takes early lead two years after win at Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Rory McIlroy was in the Bay Hill clubhouse when he saw a few people asked to remove their hats. If it wasn’t obvious before, he knew then that he was back at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard. “There's so many nice little traditions here,” McIlroy said after going 7 under for his final 12 holes and signing for an opening-round 66 to take the early lead until Matt Every came in with 65 in the tougher afternoon conditions.
