Ohio’s Doubleheader: PGA Tour goes back-to-back at Muirfield

The PGA Tour has a deal in place to play back-to-back weeks at Muirfield Village in Ohio.

According to a memo sent to players Tuesday, the tour has reached an agreement with Workday to be the title sponsor of a tournament that would be held July 9-12, one week before the Memorial.

It was not clear what role Jack Nicklaus, the tournament host of the Memorial, would have at the first event. The tour said it would be a full field of 156 players at the Workday event — without spectators — which would allow the Memorial to return to a 120-man field afforded to invitational events.

The additional Muirfield Village event replaces the John Deere Classic, whose officials decided last week it would not be held because of logistics and limitations from the COVID-19 pandemic. The John Deere would return to the schedule in 2021 in Silvis, Illinois.
