The Masters keeping close eye on opening of Georgia's economy

Early in April, the Chairman of Augusta National Golf Course Fred Ridley announced a tentative date for The Masters golf tournament in late fall. It is usually played the second weekend of April, but it was postponed at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. Georgia is one of the first states to reopen its economy, with bars, restaurants, gyms, and more getting back to business this weekend. Even President Trump has questioned whether Governor Brian Kemp’s policy is too much, too soon. If it goes well, without a severe spike in new cases in the state, that will help The Masters to solidify its plans for The Masters to move from golf’s first major to its last. Augusta National is aiming for a November 9-15 tournament.
