DES MOINES, Iowa —
Officials with the Principal Charity Classic announced Monday that the 2020 event has been rescheduled due to coronavirus concerns.
Originally set for May 26-31, the annual PGA TOUR Champions tournament will now be held September 1-6 at Wakonda Club in Des Moines.
Officials said all tickets purchased to this point will be honored for the new date.
“Iowans have remarkable strength in unifying toward a common cause,” said Dan Houston, Chairman, President and CEO of Principal. “Right now, our collective efforts are focused on immediate response to the current crisis. But when we get through this – and I know we will — we look forward to joining together, once again, at the Principal Charity Classic for great golf in support of Iowa children’s charities.”
The Principal Charity Classic has raised more than $23 million for Iowa children’s charities during that time, benefitting more than 130,000 kids each year.
