PGA Tour includes third South Carolina event to supplant canceled RBC Canadian Open

The PGA Tour is getting back to South Carolina for a third time this year, adding an event in the Palmetto State for June to take the spot of the canceled RBC Canadian Open.

The tour declared the expansion Tuesday. It implies the PGA Tour will play three times in the state, beginning with its regular yearly event the RBC Heritage on Hilton Head Island in April. The world’s best will play the PGA Championship at The Ocean Course on Kiawah Island close to Charleston in May.

The latest event will be played at the Congaree Golf Club in Ridgeland, South Carolina, nearly 80 miles southwest of Charleston.

Coordinators for the RBC Canadian Open said recently the event must be canceled in light of logistical challenges identified with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The tour said the new competition, which doesn’t yet have a name, will happen June 10-13, the week the RBC Canadian Open was set to be played.
