RENO, Nevada (April 16, 2020) – The Barracuda Championship will now take place July 27–Aug. 2 as part of PGA TOUR schedule adjustments due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“We respect the PGA TOUR’s decision as we all navigate the safest path forward, as the health and well-being for all associated with the Barracuda Championship and our region remains the No. 1 priority,” said Barracuda Championship Tournament Director Chris Hoff. “Our team is adjusting along with our great partners at Barracuda Networks and Tahoe Mountain Club as we continue to plan a safe and world-class event. Together with the PGA TOUR, we will continue to monitor local and state level recommendations regarding gatherings and events and adjust as needed going forward.”
