Taiwan Swinging Skirts LPGA canceled due to COVID, travel restrictions

Another LPGA tournament bites the dust.

On Thursday night, the LPGA released a statement that the 2020 Taiwan Swinging Skirts LPGA, scheduled for Oct. 29 – Nov. 1 at Miramar Golf Country Club, has been canceled.

The statement, in full: “Further to the advice of the Taiwan Government and GAROC, and with the significant travel restrictions put in place due to the coronavirus, the LPGA along with our tournament partners, has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Taiwan Swinging Skirts LPGA, scheduled October 29 – Nov 1 at Miramar Golf Country Club. We are very grateful to Swinging Skirts, the Sports Administration, Ministry of Education, GAROC and IMG for all their hard work in trying to make the 2020 tournament happen. While we are disappointed we cannot play this year, both Swinging Skirts and the LPGA are fully committed to returning in 2021 for the Taiwan Swinging Skirts LPGA.”

On Tuesday, the LPGA announced the cancellation of the Buick LPGA Shanghai, originally scheduled for Oct. 15-18.

This week the tour is in action across the pond at the Ladies Scottish Open. The LPGA returned to action two weeks ago with consecutive events at Inverness in Toledo, Ohio, where Danielle Kang emerged victorious in both.
