Those itching to bet on sports during this crazy coronavirus pandemic thought they were in luck after the PGA announced Thursday that US PGA Tour events would continue minus any spectators.  That stance changed late Thursday when the PGA announced the suspension of this week's Players Championship, and potentially more upcoming golf events.

The decision was reached by the PGA Tour after the conclusion of Round 1 play on Thursday.

A press conference is scheduled on Friday at 8 a.m. ET at which time the PGA Tour will answer further questions.

"It is with regret that we are announcing the cancellation of The Players Championship. We have also decided to cancel all PGA Tour events – across all of our Tours – in the coming weeks, through the Valero Texas Open," the PGA Tour said in a statement.

"We have pledged from the start to be responsible, thoughtful and transparent with our decision process. We did everything possible to create a safe environment for our players in order to continue the event throughout the weekend, and we were endeavoring to give our fans a much-needed respite from the current climate.  But at this point -- and as the situation continues to rapidly change -- the right thing to do for our players and our fans is to pause."

The Valspar Championship, WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and Texas Open will also be canceled. 

The next event to be played on the PGA Tour is the Masters, which begins on Thursday, April 9.

All Golf futures have been pulled by BetOnline for now as a result of this news.
