MANILA, Philippines — The National Golf Association of the Philippines has decided to postpone the holding of the National Stroke Play Championship that was supposed to start tomorrow at Manila Southwoods’ Legends course due to the alarming spike in COVID cases.
With the concurrence of Manila Southwoods, the NGAP made the call to move the event to a later date.
The local golf’s governing body said it was “the most responsible action to take at this time.”
“We would rather err on the side of caution and not contribute to any risk of transmission at our event,” the NGAP said in a statement signed by secretary general Bones Floro. “The NGAP board has therefore determined that the most responsible course of action to take at this time is to defer the tournament until the situation has improved.”
