Turneringer utsatt og avlyst
Det kan bli en stund til vi får se Marianne Skarpnord med et nytt trofé.
Rekken av utsatte og avlyste turneringer vil ingen enda ta.
Nå opplyser LET at turneringer i Marokko og Sverige blir utsatt og avlyst.
Det betyr av flere av våre beste spillere på damesiden må se langt etter
lønningsposen en god stund til.
Profesjonelle golfspillere står helt uten lønn siden de ikke kan spille
turneringer. De er avhengig av sponsorer i denne tiden.

Scandinavian Mixed hosted by Henrik and Annika
The European Tour today confirmed the
postponement of Trophée Hassan II and the cancellation of the Scandinavian Mixed
hosted by Henrik and Annika, due to the continuing threat posed by the spread of
Marokko - utsatt
The Lalla Meryem Cup on the Ladies European Tour, which was scheduled to take
place concurrently with Trophée Hassan II at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam, Rabat,
Morocco from June 4-7, 2020, has also been postponed.
The decision to postpone both events in Morocco was taken following consultation
between the Hassan II Trophy Association, chaired by His Royal Highness Prince
Moulay Rachid, the European Tour and the Ladies European Tour.
Stenson Sörenstam avlyst
The Scandinavian Mixed – an innovative mixed event hosted by Major Champions
Henrik Stenson and Annika Sorenstam - was scheduled to take place at Bro Hof
Slott Golf Club in Stockholm, Sweden from June 11-14, 2020, with men and women
set to go head-to-head for the first time on the same course competing for one
prize fund and one trophy.
Following this season’s cancellation - which was agreed in consultation with all
stakeholders - the event will be included on the European Tour and Ladies
European Tour schedules from 2021.
Keith Pelley, European Tour Chief Executive, said: “We will continue to monitor
the global situation in relation to Coronavirus and evaluate its impact on all
our tournaments, with public health and well-being our absolute priority. We
thank all stakeholders involved in Trophée Hassan II and the Scandinavian Mixed
– including His Royal Highness Prince Moulay Rachid and the Hassan II Trophy
Association, the Ladies European Tour and Henrik Stenson and Annika Sorenstam.
“Discussions regarding the possible rescheduling of all postponed tournaments
will remain ongoing until we have clarity on the global situation.”
Alexandra Armas, Chief Executive Officer of the Ladies European Tour, said:
“We are deeply grateful for the incredible support and flexibility shown by our
partners at this challenging time and would like to thank the Hassan II Trophy
Association and the European Tour for their unwavering commitment to working
together. As we monitor the global situation with regards to Covid-19, we
continue to wish for the health and safety of the entire golfing community.”
