People who love golf were broken hearted by The Masters decision to not play during their traditional week in April. Many thought it might not even happen this year. The only other times it was missed was 1943-1945. However they announced today that it will happen November 9-15 according to the Augusta National Golf Club. In their statement they go on to say; "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."
