European Tour suspends ticket sales ‘until further notice’

The European Tour have called an understandable halt to their ticket and hospitality sales – the next event is due in Spain at the end of April
 

The next official four-day European Tour event will now take place in Denmark on May 21 after Valderrama was postponed due to the coronavirus threat.

Then it is on to Ireland, Morocco, Sweden, and then it’s the US Open.

So it came as no surprise that the tour’s chief executive Keith Pelley has suspended ticket hospitality sales for this year’s events until further notice.

“This is a temporary measure but one we feel is proportionate in the current circumstances. If there are any changes to the status of any of our tournaments, we will communicate this to you in due course.”

So far eight events will not take place – Valderrama, Malaysia, China, Kenya and India, as well as the Masters, are currently postponed and the WGC-Match Play and Czech Masters in August have been cancelled.

So what does a tour do when they have no golf to talk about?

“While we are unable to bring you any live action during these unprecedented times, over the coming weeks social media will undoubtedly play an even more important role in keeping people entertained and connected. We will therefore do our best to continue to provide you with engaging content and our social media channels, including archive footage.”

The last event to take place, something that will become something of a quiz question in the months to come, was when Jorge Campillo beat David Drysdale in a play-off in Qatar.
