The United States Golf Association (USGA) is yet to make a decision on whether spectators will be able to attend this year’s U.S. Open.
Winged Foot Golf Club will host the 2020 edition of the major in September, with the coronavirus pandemic having forced a postponement from the original June date.
However, it remains to be seen whether fans will be in attendance at the New York course.
The USGA released a statement on Monday, the same day New York governor Andrew Cuomo urged sports organisations to get things back up and running again.

“We have not made a final determination regarding whether spectators will be able to attend the 2020 U.S. Open at Winged Foot Golf Club,” the USGA statement read.
“Given the realities of the pandemic, we are recreating the entire championship for everyone involved.
“We appreciate and understand everyone’s questions and will provide more information as soon as possible.”
The USGA also confirmed on Monday that qualifying for the U.S. Open had been cancelled.
