Fans are returning to golf in 2021, that’s the good news.
After one tournament in nine months with fans in attendance, the PGA Tour appears to be laying the groundwork for consistently getting some number of butts in seats by the end of the year.
Barring any changes, 2021 will open with limited fans in attendance at Kapalua for the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Then, after a month off, they will return in February in a limited capacity for golf’s favorite fan spectacle, the Waste Management Phoenix Open. That’s what we know for now, with the obvious caveat of the ever-changing landscape presented by an unprecedented situation.
