The event at Colonial Country Club marked the first golf played on the PGA Tour since The Players was cancelled after the opening round on March 12, with the world’s top five all featuring in a star-studded line-up.

No fans could attend due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the first of at least five events behind closed doors, with the only crowd noise coming from houses adjacent to certain holes of the course.

The absence of spectators produced a different atmosphere to previous PGA Tour events, with very little noise around the course and near-silence greeting Daniel Berger after he defeated Collin Morikawa in a play-off to take the title.

The experience was the first time many played competitively and without an audience since their amateur or college careers, with some adjusting to the empty fairways and muted atmosphere quicker than others.
