(WTXL) — PGA announced the cancellation of The Players Championship as well as all PGA Tour events on Thursday.

They went on to say the cancellation would go through the Valero Texas Open.

PGA had announced earlier on Thursday their tours would continue without audiences.

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.
