Singapore: The Asian Tour will consider extending the 2020 season into next year.

“As all of you are aware by now, most international sporting events scheduled for March, April and May have either been cancelled or postponed,” said Cho Minn Thant, Commissioner and Chief Executive Officer of the Asian Tour, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

He added: “Nevertheless, the situation remains fluid and evolves every day and it is not possible at this time to predict when we will be able to resume conducting our events safely.

“The Asian Tour and Asian Development Tour seasons are on hold in an indefinite recess due to the inability to travel to and onward from host countries and restrictions from local governments on gatherings, including sporting events.

“We will only resume staging tournaments when it is deemed safe to do so in the most appropriate manner to ensure the security and safety of the golfing community, tournament stakeholders, players, officials, the hosting country, volunteers and fans.

“With the disruption to the tournaments on our schedule, we will look into the possibility of extending the 2020 season into the calendar year 2021.

“However, this cannot be determined until we have a clearer picture of the full extent of disruptions to our schedule of events. We will play events in 2020 if the situation permits but when that will be is still undetermined.”
