PGA Tour to honor Floyd

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - SPORTS -

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.
