Per a press release from the PGA TOUR, the TOUR will be working with tournament organizations and title sponsors to build a reimagined schedule for 2020 that ensures the health and safety for all and a meaningful conclusion to the season.
“As we all deal with the immediate impacts of the coronavirus, Regions is focused on the safety and health of our customers and associates,” said John Turner, Regions Bank President and CEO. “While our community rallies together, we also understand that events like the Regions Tradition are important in their economic impact to local businesses and in direct benefits to nonprofits.
