PGA Tour Chief Tournaments and Competitions Officer Andy Pazder has confirmed that the 2020 RSM Classic will be played without spectators due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We appreciate the cooperation of the Davis Love Foundation team, RSM, Sea Island Golf Club, and – of course – the fans of southeast Georgia for understanding why collectively we had to make this decision.
