PGA Tour's latest memo advises players of where to stay and eat at Colonial




 

The first tee shot of the PGA Tour's restart is still two weeks away, but players are being advised to start their preparations now for the Charles Schwab Challenge.

In a memo sent to players on Wednesday, tournament director Michael Tothe outlined many of the protocols that will be required when play resumes on June 11 at Colonial including the four Fort Worth, Texas, hotels that will create the foundation of the circuit's "bubble" for the week.

Will the PGA Tour's fine line of testing protocols be enough when play returns?

Players are allowed to stay in individual RVs or rental homes but they are being encouraged to assure the health and safety of their accommodations if they choose to stay outside the bubble.

Players were also informed where COVID-19 testing will occur when they arrive in Fort Worth as well as meal options at Colonial, which will be limited to grab-and-go lunches in order to follow safety protocols.

The Tour also advised players and caddies to begin the process for at-home testing that will be required before arrival at Colonial. At-home testing will include self-taken saliva samples that will be supervised by a physician via a video call and then mailed to a laboratory for testing.

The PGA Tour and the Memorial scrapped state-approved plans to have limited spectators next week because of what it described as rapidly changing dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Memorial, hosted by Jack Nicklaus on his Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, was in line to be the first tournament with spectators since golf resumed its schedule on June 11 in Texas. Ohio Republican Gov. Mike DeWine last month approved a plan that would allow the Memorial to have 20% capacity on property, which would include fans, private hospitality areas and essential staff to run the tournament.
