I said before that the PGA Tour returning at Colonial on June 8th would not happen due to Coronavirus fears.  Well it seems reason is going out the window and plans are advancing at full steam to hold the event behind closed doors.

It's ok that I'm not convinced they are organising this safely, but when Adam Scott questions the 'protocols' and says he won't have anything to do with the event or several after, you have to take notice.

The PGA Tour is putting it out that they can test every player, caddie, official, everyone involved and have the results back inside two hours.  That is absolute bollox, and Scott knows it.

"What concerns me is dialogue that Tour is hopeful of returning one or two-hour test. You'd want that in place before competing," Scott says.

In the PGA Tour's own protocol it says it will use nasal swab tests that “at best” will return a result in 24-48 hours.

Scott also questioned picking up the virus from an asymptomatic person at a tournament.

"If they're not showing symptoms and I somehow picked it up inside the course and I'm disqualified I'm now self-isolating (there) for two weeks. I'd be annoyed if that happened. I thought you'd start quite tight and loosen those protocols to normal if appropriate."

Cant wait to see what they come with next. A vaccine that only works on players and caddies?
