Coronavirus: Hero Womens Indian Open golf cancelled

Bengaluru, June 30: The Ladies European Tour (LET) and Women’s Golf Association of India (WGAI) on Tuesday announced the cancellation of the Hero Women’s Indian Open, scheduled for October 1-4, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The tournament will return to the Gary Player Course at DLF Golf and Country Club in Gurugram for the 14th edition in October 2021.

WGAI President Kavita Singh said, "It was a very difficult decision, but the right one under the present circumstances of the ongoing pandemic. With no likelihood of any respite in the foreseeable future, safeguarding the health and well being of all players, officials and spectators is of paramount importance.

“We hope to return next year with another stellar edition of the Hero Women's Indian Open in October, 2021."

Alexandra Armas, Chief Executive, LET, said, “It is incredibly disappointing to miss a year of the Hero Women’s Indian Open, one of the biggest professional women’s golf events of the Tour. But we look forward to being back next year. This was a tough decision for everyone involved, but we feel it is the most responsible course of action following consultation with all stakeholders.

The Hero Women’s Indian Open has been held each year since 2007. It was co-sanctioned by the Ladies European Tour (LET) in 2010 and became a part of the calendar on the LET.

The tournament has been held at the DLF Golf and Country Club, Gurugram each year except in 2013 and 2014, when the course was undergoing a redesign. The defending champion is Christine Wolf of Austria.
