RSM Classic Update
Earlier this week, the PGA TOUR made the announcement that due to the ongoing health crisis related to COVID-19, all PGA TOUR events through the week of the AT&T Byron Nelson (May 7-10) have been canceled. Furthermore, the PGA of America has postponed the PGA Championship (May 14-17) for a date later this year, to be announced.
With today’s news, we wanted to provide an update regarding the 2020 RSM Classic scheduled for November 16-22, 2020.
The goal of the Davis Love Foundation is to contribute to the well-being and progress of society by supporting both national and community-based programs that focus on children and their families. The mission of the Davis Love Foundation is to help build a better future for children and their families who are at risk of poor educational, economic, social and health outcomes. With this mission in mind, we are looking at ways to continually impact our community during this time in a positive, uplifting way.
Both the Davis Love Foundation and RSM are deeply moved by the commitment to the RSM Classic by volunteers, employees and patrons in the past. We believe that through the adherence to the CDC guidelines we will once again enjoy the competition we have come to look forward to each November, and thus continue to provide for the charities that depend on our event each year.
The Davis Love Foundation is thankful for the support from our title sponsor, RSM, and from our other partners and sponsors all year long. We have great appreciation for the leadership the PGA TOUR has shown throughout these constantly changing days. The golf world may seem large at times, but deep down it is a close-knit, supportive body with the ability to have far reaching impacts in our communities through host organizations, sponsors and PGA TOUR players. It has been truly remarkable to see how people are working together to support each other, and we believe we will be better and stronger for it.
This is obviously a very fluid situation that requires constant review, communication and transparency, and we – working closely with the PGA TOUR – are dedicated to all three aspects. As we prepare for the 2020 playing of the RSM Classic, we will continue to monitor information provided by the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control along with local and state government health agencies. On a regular basis, we will provide status updates including any additional protocols put in place to ensure the health and safety of all in attendance.
We encourage our fans to stay informed on the developments of the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 through official sources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website (cdc.gov) and CORONA.GEORGIA.GOV. We will provide further updates as new information becomes available and appreciate your patience and understanding.
