The LPGA Tour on Thursday canceled the Swinging Skirts tournament because of ongoing COVID-19 concerns and travel restrictions.

The event had been scheduled for Oct. 29 to Nov. 1 at Miramar Golf Country Club in New Taipei City, but the LPGA said the decision to cancel was based on the latest advice from the Taiwanese government.

“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,” the LPGA said.

The announcement comes two days after it canceled its Shanghai tournament after China said it would not hold most international sports events this year because of COVID-19.
