. The LPGA Tour will not resume until after the coronavirus pandemic, until the majority of international players can participate in tournaments, said Commissioner Mike Whan.

Friday, it was announced that the US Women's Open, which was due to take place in June, had been moved to December.

The following five LPGA events have been postponed or canceled.

"I didn't see us organize an event where half of our players couldn't play," said Whan.

He added: "May I see us play an event where our international players can't come? I don't think I could officially call that.

" We think that we should be in the 75% range of eligible players who can play. "

Whan also said the major changes announced in the LPGA schedule are designed to provide clarity. offer to players and caddies

"We have players who are not sure if they should go home and when they go home they are not sure if they can come back" he said.

"So by drawing a line in the sand and saying that this is the plan – not just for players but also for caddies – it gave them the freedom to say 'I don't have to think & # 39 ;.

"It will be quite different in eight weeks. Every two weeks checking in, we increased anxiety rather than relieving it for many athletes."
