Beijing time on September 30, the Bermuda Championship will allow a certain number of fans to enter the stadium next month. This means that the two-year-old tournament will become the first PGA Tour tournament open to spectators since the outbreak of the new crown epidemic.
The PGA Tour and the Bermuda government jointly announced that a certain number of fans can enter the Port Royal Golf Club to watch the game when the tournament is held from October 29 to November 1. As for how many audiences can be put in each day, it will be decided according to the local government's restrictions on the number of public gatherings. Residents and tourists of Bermuda can enter the game.
Bermuda is the region with the highest per capita COVID-19 detection in the Americas, and its latest health and safety regulations have been praised by the International Tourism Organization. As of September 28, the Bermuda government has conducted 63,640 tests, of which 181 have tested positive, and 9 people have died of new coronary pneumonia.
"The Bermuda Championship is very proud to achieve such a milestone and become the first PGA Tour to welcome spectators," said tournament director Sean Sovacool.
This is the first time since the first round of the Players Championship on March 12, the PGA Tour allows spectators to come on the court and watch the game outside the loop. Earlier this month, South Dakota's Championship Tour allowed a certain number of spectators to enter the stadium, and starting from the Dominica game last week, the PGA Tour restarted its professional/amateur matchmaking.
Brendon Todd (Brendon Todd) won his first tournament victory at the Bermuda Championship last year, which was his first victory since 2014. Due to the cancellation of the World Championships-HSBC Championship, this year's event will have an independent week. The champion can be invited to participate in the 2021 US Masters, and can also qualify for next year's Sentinel Championship, the Players Championship and the US PGA Championship.
