The 2020 LPGA Symetra Tour will resume its golf season in July.
The FireKeepers Casino Hotel Championship at Battle Creek Country Club, scheduled for July 24-26, will be the first tournament played since the season was put on hold for three months because of COVID-19 and the first of nine tournaments on the remaining 2020 Symetra Tour schedule, which totals 10 tournaments for the 2020 campaign.
“We are extremely grateful to our partners and host venues for continued flexibility and support,” said Mike Nichols, chief business officer of the Symetra Tour. “They have worked tirelessly to keep all hopes and dreams alive for the next generation of LPGA Tour stars. In addition to Symetra Tour sponsors, the ANNIKA Foundation recently showcased an unparalleled form of generosity with their Crisis Relief Fund, providing $50,000 in grants to Symetra Tour players financially affected by the coronavirus.”
