John Deere Classic in Illinois canceled
The John Deere Classic has decided to cancel what would have been its 50th anniversary as a PGA Tour event.
Tournament director Clair Peterson says there were too many obstacles to overcome and too many risks from the COVID-19 pandemic that it made sense in the long run to not hold the tournament.
"In Illinois, by the governor's mandate, we're not supposed to have gatherings of more than 50 people through the summer," Peterson said in a telephone interview. "And then you have the rest of its layers on top of that."
