Watson Challenge Postponed to 2021

LENEXA, KS (July 9, 2020) – Representatives of the Watson Challenge Committee and the host committee from the National Golf Club met today and decided to postpone the Watson Challenge until spring of 2021.

“The decision to not play the event in 2020 was a difficult one for all involved.”, said Watson Challenge director Doug Habel, “The staff and members of the National have made every effort to try and play the event, but ultimately decided that the safety of the club’s members and tournament players was more important. The committee supports that decision and we are thankful that they will host the event next year.”

While the date for next year’s Watson Challenge has not yet been set, the National has committed to hosting the event.
