On Saturday, PGA Tour and the Greenbrier Resort announced that The Greenbrier Classic, which was scheduled to take place July 7-10, has been canceled. This is due to record rainfalls, which resulted in devastating flooding.
The Old White TPC, host course for the tournament, has extensive damage and is beyond reasonable repair to conduct the tournament.
“We are heartbroken by the devastation that the residents of West Virginia are experiencing at this time and the reports of lives lost due to the terrible flooding,” PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem stated. “Cancelling The Greenbrier Classic is certainly the most prudent course of action as our foremost concern is the well-being of those who are having to live through this tragic situation. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.”
“All of our focus needs to be on helping all of the people of our great State. So many have lost loved ones, their homes, and have no place to go,” exclaimed Jim Justice, owner of The Greenbrier.
