Two European Tour tournaments have been postponed because of the outbreak of the coronavirus.
The Maybank Championship in Malaysia – scheduled for 16-19 April at Saujana Golf & Country Club in Kuala Lumpur – and the following week’s Volvo China Open, which was due to be held at Genzon Golf Club in Shenzhen, have been called off.
Both events could be rescheduled for later in the year, although alternative dates have yet to be announced.
“The well-being of our players, spectators and staff is always our absolute priority,” European Tour chief executive Keith Pelley said. “While it is therefore regrettable that the Maybank Championship and Volvo China Open have been postponed, we feel this is the correct course of action at this time. We are currently investigating alternative dates for both events.”
