Taiwan LPGA event cancelled due to COVID-19

The LPGA Taiwan Swinging Skirts golf tournament has been cancelled due to the circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic. The tournament was scheduled to be held from October 29 to November 1 at Miramar Golf Country Club.

“Further to the advice of the Taiwan government and GAROC, and with the significant travel restrictions put in place due to the coronavirus, the LPGA along with our tournament partners, has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Taiwan Swinging Skirts LPGA, scheduled October 29 Nov 1 at Miramar Golf Country Club,” said LPGA in its statement.

“We are very grateful to Swinging Skirts, the Sports Administration, Ministry of Education, GAROC and IMG for all their hard work in trying to make the 2020 tournament happen.

“While we are disappointed we cannot play this year, both Swinging Skirts and the LPGA are fully committed to returning in 2021 for the Taiwan Swinging Skirts LPGA.”

The 2020 season of the LPGA was shut down in February after just four events due to the pandemic. It restarted two weeks ago with back to back events that were both won by Danielle Kang. The first major of the season will now be the British Open that will be held at Troon.
