2020 Masters Targeting November 9-15
Monday, April 06, 2020

Statement from Fred Ridley, Chairman of Augusta National Golf Club:
On March 13, we announced the postponement of the Masters Tournament and the Augusta National Women’s Amateur based upon the risks associated with the Coronavirus COVID-19, a pandemic that continues to impact lives everywhere.
We remain very mindful of the extraordinary and unprecedented challenges presented by the Coronavirus around the world. As such, we continue to keep in close contact with local, state and national health authorities to help inform our decisions.
In collaboration with the leading organizations in golf, Augusta National Golf Club has identified November 9-15 as the intended dates to host the 2020 Masters. While more details will be shared in the weeks and months to come, we, like all of you, will continue to focus on all mandated precautions and guidelines to fight against the Coronavirus. Along the way, we hope the anticipation of staging the Masters Tournament in the fall brings a moment of joy to the Augusta community and all those who love the sport.
We want to emphasize that our future plans are incumbent upon favorable counsel and direction from health officials. Provided that occurs and we can conduct the 2020 Masters, we intend to invite those professionals and amateurs who would have qualified for our original April date and welcome all existing ticket holders to enjoy the excitement of Masters week.
After careful consideration and following an extensive review process, we also have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Augusta National Women’s Amateur. Ultimately, the many scheduling challenges with NCAA tournaments, the World Amateur Team Championships, the LPGA Q-Series and other events when women’s amateur golf resumes led to this decision.
Each player who accepted an invitation for the 2020 championship will be invited to compete in the 2021 Augusta National Women’s Amateur, provided she remains an amateur. Also, those who purchased tickets will be sent a refund in May and given the opportunity to purchase tickets for the event next year. We thank everyone for their understanding of this decision, and we look forward to the championship returning in full strength next spring.
We know the effects of these announcements will be far-reaching. Additional information will be made available on Masters.com and ANWAgolf.com as details become known. Your patience is appreciated as we hope and plan for the 84th Masters this November.
Thank you for your continued support and we wish you and your loved ones health and safety during these uncertain times.

The only question I have...if they play in November, will they be ready again next April with the usual pristine, gorgeous scenery we've been lucky to see in the past. Or, because of the late play, will it force some changes come next year as a ripple effect?

I think the bigger question is what will they do leading up to November? The club normally closes shortly after the Masters until autumn. Now they'll likely need to stay open or at least water the grass all summer to have it ready by November.

On March 16, a few days after the Players was canceled and the Masters postponed, Woods tweeted: "There are a lot more important things in life than a golf tournament right now. We need to be safe, smart and do what is best for ourselves, our loved ones and our community.'

The Masters has been rescheduled for November, and if all goes well, Woods will have a chance to host the Champions Dinner on Nov. 10.

QUOTED  The Masters has been rescheduled for November, and if all goes well, Woods will have a chance to host the Champions Dinner on Nov. 10.

For sure how many times has he been able to choose the menu? What fall veggies are in season when it happens for real.
The best part he gets to choose whatever he wants, the way he wants it. An annual event suggested by Ben Hogan.
Bubba gets a seat at the table, Freddie, Gentle Ben, Gary, Mike, Jack, Ray, Phil, Curtis, Padraig, Sandy, Ian, Sir Nick, Bernhard even Patrick among the others.

When Bobby Jones and Cliff Roberts commissioned the great Alister MacKenzie to design Augusta National in 1931 they already had plans for the sub-air systems which would later be installed under all the greens once the technology became available. (fib)

Ranging in cost from $20,k-$25,000 the sub-air system is able to control the moisture and keep the greens consistent and tournament ready.

I'm sure as far as the course and conditions. All will be great. They can grow grass in Georgia without to much trouble. Azaleas in bloom maybe not so much in November.
