PGA Tour cancels Greenbrier Classic amid West Virginia flood

BETHESDA, Md. (AP) – The PGA Tour says the Greenbrier Classic scheduled for next month has been canceled because of the devastating flooding in West Virginia.

The tournament had been scheduled for July 7-10. Tour officials say the Old White TPC at the Greenbrier Resort, the host course, suffered extensive damage from the flooding and “is beyond reasonable repair to conduct the tournament.”

PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem said officials were heartbroken by the devastation in West Virginia. He said canceling the Greenbrier was the most prudent course of action.

The Greenbrier Classic began in 2010. The PGA Tour is committed to holding the event through 2021.
