The sports world has been on hold for almost a month, and no one knows when live events will take place again.

But that's not stopping the PGA Tour from setting dates for some of its events.

The 2020 PGA Championship, which is set to be played at Harding Park in San Francisco, will be rescheduled for Aug. 6-9, The San Francisco Chronicle's Ron Kroichick and Scott Ostler reported Sunday, citing a source.

The event was originally scheduled to take place May 14-17, but the global coronavirus pandemic forced the PGA Tour to postpone all their events.

The event will mark the first time San Francisco has hosted the PGA Championship, one of golf's four major tournaments.

Brooks Koepka has won the last two PGA Championships and is aiming to be the first player to win at least three straight since Walter Hogan won four in a row from 1924 to 1927.
