PGA Tour to honor Floyd
The PGA Tour is leaving the
8:46 a.m. tee time vacant this week at Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas, as part of a tribute to George Floyd and to support efforts to end racial injustice.
In a memo to players, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said there would be a moment of silence in each of the four rounds at the Charles Schwab Challenge that will coincide with the 8:46 a.m. tee time. The time reflects how long — 8 minutes, 46 seconds — authorities say Floyd was pinned to the ground under a white Minneapolis police officer’s knee before the handcuffed black man died.
