Prime News, International Sport, Golf, Washington (USA), June 4:- The Official World Golf Ranking will restart next week when the PGA Tour and Korn Ferry Tour hold official tournaments for the first time in three months.
The ranking was frozen on March 15 as golf joined the rest of sports worldwide in shutting down sports because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The European Tour does not resume until July 22. That leaves some players unable to earn ranking points. The OWGR board says major organisations such as the USGA and PGA of America have agreed to incorporate the March 15 ranking into whatever qualifying criteria they have involving the ranking.
