LENEXA, Kansas, June 26, 2020 – The 2020 Watson Challenge will be played on August 4-6 at the National Golf Club of Kansas City. The rescheduled date was announced on April 3, 2020, due to coronavirus concerns.
Unfortunately, event namesake and 5-time champion, Tom Watson is having shoulder surgery and will not be able to play. The field will still be strong, including 2-time champion and 2019 Kansas Amateur champion, Andy Spencer and defending champion, Alex Springer.
Due to COVID-19, spectators will be limited to National Golf Club members, tournament sponsors, and five guests per player.
“The Watson Challenge is one of the premier golf events in the Kansas City area, and it’s our intention to keep players, spectators, volunteers, and staff safe,” Doug Habel, Tournament Director, said. Central Links Golf will continue to monitor the health crisis and make any necessary changes to the event.
