Coronavirus Forces Canceled The Evian Championship
The Evian Championship women’s major golf tournament has been canceled because of the coronavirus outbreak.
The event in France had already been postponed from July to Aug. 6-9.
Organizers say they cannot overcome “uncertainty concerning the opening of borders” with Asia and the United States.
Tournament chairman Franck Riboud says the cancellation is “unavoidable in view of the situation with regards to U.S. travel to continental Europe.”
The Women’s British Open is still set for Aug. 20-23 in Troon, Scotland.
The three majors played in the United States have been rescheduled for later in the year.
