Report Stephen Curry's PGA Tour event scrapped

Twitter to Live Stream 2019 PGA Tour in Canada and Beyond, Again

Twitter to Live Stream 2019 PGA Tour in Canada and Beyond, Again

But time was running short, with the tournament scheduled for eight months away and not even a tournament director hired.

The Curry-hosted event was scheduled to be played September 19-22 at Lake Merced Golf Club and begin with next season's schedule, but there doesn't seem to be time to find a replacement sponsor. Lake Merced president Jeff Pero emailed members Tuesday, disclosing the tour's decision to "cease further work on the tournament".

Kay Madati, VP and Global Head of Content Partnerships at Twitter, said in a statement, "We saw tremendous excitement and growth in 2018 around golf conversation and sponsor enthusiasm for PGA TOUR content on Twitter". The bottom line is the short timeframe for creating an event in early fall of 2019 was the biggest obstacle.

Bollywood stars meet PM Modi
Modi's last meeting with the film fraternity in December had drawn criticism for not including any female personality. In this meeting, Bollywood stars met PM Modi and clicked some pictures with him as well.

This time around, Saturday and Sunday morning coverage "will result in the most live PGA TOUR content ever offered on Twitter", explains a press release. That meant more open dates in the fall portion of the wraparound season. And although the 2019-20 schedule has yet to be announced, the Curry event was scheduled to be played in mid-September, following the season-opening event at the Greenbrier and prior to another Northern California tournament, the Safeway Open.

The tour shared a similar sentiment: "We look forward to continuing discussions with Stephen Curry, his family's foundation and other parties with the hopes of ultimately bringing a PGA Tour event to the Bay Area in the future".
