The COVID-19 pandemic has now officially claimed the Windsor Championship golf tournament for 2020.
The Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada event was scheduled for its third year on July 16-19. The event was postponed earlier this month with hopes it could be picked up later in the year, but the tour cancelled its entire season on Friday.

“Working closely with the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada, we fully support the decision to cancel the 2020 season,” Adam Wagner, who is the Windsor Championship tournament director, said in a release. “Our primary responsibility is the safety of the local community and we feel like this is the best decision for everybody.”
However, Wagner said the event is expected to return in 2021, but no dates have been released.
“Our commitment to the Windsor community and the Windsor Championship is unwavering and we are going to work hard towards putting on another strong community-based event in 2021,” Wagner said.
