Domestic sports leagues such as the NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS and ATP Tour, along with the NCAA, have all shut down competition for the foreseeable future in an effort to help slow down the spread of the virus and protect the health of the athletes, officials, spectators and volunteers.

The same is occurring in the world of golf. Below is a listing of all the major professional and amateur events that have been either canceled or postponed over the coronavirus. We’ll update this list as more events are impacted.
