Symetra Tour Cancels Next Two Tournaments

SYMETRA TOUR STATEMENT ON UPCOMING SCHEDULE

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The Symetra Tour announced today that the next two events on the schedule—the Prasco Charity Championship in Maineville, Ohio, from July 8-10, and Danielle Downey Credit Union Classic in Rochester, N.Y., from July 16-19—have been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Both tournaments will return in 2021.

“While it was a difficult decision to cancel these events for 2020, there is a silver lining in that each will be back next year,” said Mike Nichols, the Chief Business Officer of the Symetra Tour. “We are grateful to work with such outstanding partners as Prasco and the credit unions of the greater Rochester area, and look forward to working with everyone involved for years to come.”

The Symetra Tour team is in consistent communication with tournament title sponsors and venues, and if necessary, further schedule adjustments will be shared when appropriate.
