Regions Tradition 2020 tournament canceled

2020 Regions Tradition has been canceled

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Gene Hallman with Bruno Event Team confirmed Friday that Regions Tradition has been canceled.

The tournament will not happen this year because of COVID-19.

The PGA Champions Tour was rescheduled for September 23-27.

The golf tournament has a $20 million economic impact on the area. Even though it has been canceled, local charities will still receive $750,000 from Regions Tradition.

Hallman said it was briefly discussed having the tournament without fans, but it’s such a community-based event they couldn’t see holding it without fans.
