Indian Open gets cancelled due to COVID-19

One of the main golf events of India, the Indian Open is cancelled due amid Coronavirus fear.

For the first time in 56 years, the Indian Open is cancelled because from 1964, it's held every time not cancelled once but Corona has forced the Indian Golf Union to take such a step. Three days ago, the female Indian Open was cancelled due to the same reason. Both the men's and women's Indian Open are part of the European Tour.

It's been three months when both men's and women's golf tournament were held in West Bengal and Uttar Pradesh respectively. We will have to wait and watch, when golf events in India will start once again.
