American Family Insurance Championship postponed due to pandemic

MADISON (WKOW) -- Organizers of the American Family Insurance Championship have postponed the event.

The move came after the announcement that UW-Madison has extended the cancellation of non-essential in-person campus events and meetings through June 30. This impacts University Ridge, the golf course where the tournament is held.

Organizers of the championship sent out this statement after UW's announcement:

“We are aware of the decision by the University of Wisconsin to keep its facilities closed through the month of June. We have been working closely alongside the PGA TOUR with the joint understanding the 2020 American Family Insurance Championship would not be held during its scheduled dates of May 30 – June 7. The health and safety of fans, sponsors, volunteers, employees, competitors and all associated with the event will continue to be our number one priority. More information on the American Family Insurance Championship and its continued commitment to Madison and area charities will be announced next week.”
