PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida (April 2, 2020) – The PGA of America today announced that the 2020 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, scheduled for Harbor Shores Resort in Benton Harbor, Michigan from May 19-24, has been canceled in light of the the stay-at-home order enacted on March 23 for the state of Michigan.

“While we are incredibly disappointed, we all understand that protecting public health is the highest priority,” said PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh. “We are especially disappointed for the Benton Harbor community, our friends at KitchenAid and the fans and volunteers who support this important championship so passionately.”

“This was not an easy decision. This Championship means so much to our KitchenAid brand and the Southwest Michigan community, however the health and safety of our community is our priority,” said Jeff Noel, vice president of communications and public affairs for Whirlpool Corporation, parent company of KitchenAid. “We thank our corporate and hospitality partners and our 1600 volunteers for their continued support of the Championship. The contestants have become a welcomed extension of our community over the years and while we are incredibly disappointed that the Championship will not return to Benton Harbor in 2020, we know that this is the right thing to do.”

The 2021 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship will be played at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma, May 25-30, and return to Harbor Shores Resort in Benton Harbor, Michigan in 2022.

His other dream, albeit far-fetched, it to record an ace in all seven states of our distribution area. Thanks to an ace in Illinois in 2015, and one in Michigan in 2016, he has three down, four to go!
