The AIG Women's British Open and AIS Ladies' Scottish Open both remain on schedule as the LPGA announces its plan to restart its 2020 season.

The LPGA announced this week that it is now targeting a return to action in mid-July as its season continues to be disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The original schedule featured 34 events. At present, there will be 25 events with three out of the five women's majors rescheduled.

The 1st major in the LPGA's revised schedule is the Evian Championship at the Evian Resort Golf Club in France from 6-9 August. It retains its original dates, however, with French Government banning all sporting events until September 1, the event already looks in danger.

The AIG Women's British Open at the Royal Troon Golf Club in Scotland from 20-23 August, now the 2nd major on the revised schedule, also retains its original slot. As does the AIS Ladies' Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club in Scotland from 13-16 August, which is the only other UK tournament on the LPGA Tour.

The other three majors, the ANA Inspiration, the U.S. Women’s Open, and the KPMG Women's PGA Championship, which are normally held in April, June and July, have all been postponed to later in the year.

The LPGA did not clarify if any spectators would be allowed at its resumed tournaments, something that is likely to depend on local health and safety initiatives. On the men’s side, The PGA is targeting a return to action in mid June, but initially without fans.

The LPGA schedule for the Women's Majors is now as follows:

6-9 August
The Evian Championship
Evian Resort Golf Club, Evian-les-Bains, France

20-23 August
AIG Women's British Open
Royal Troon Golf Club, Troon, Scotland

10-13 September
