AUGUSTA, Ga. – The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has really taken a hit on all major sports in the United States. It has postponed many sporting events and for the ones that have returned, there have been no fans allowed at any of those events.

In the golf world, however, fans could be making a comeback sooner than some might have expected. Online sportsbooks have odds on if both the Masters and the U.S. Open will have fans in attendance at those events.

Will The Masters Tournament Allow Spectators?

  • Yes -150
  • No +110

Will The U.S. Open Tournament Allow Spectators?

  • No -500
  • Yes +300

Right off the bat, bettors should not be quick to take the favorite on the Masters Tournament as the direction of COVID-19 is still unknown.

As of right now, however, Masters’ officials have made it clear that they will attempt to allow limited fans at the Masters.

“In collaboration with the leading organizations in golf, Augusta National Golf Club has identified November 9-15 as the intended dates to host the 2020 Masters. While more details will be shared in the weeks and months to come, we, like all of you, will continue to focus on all mandated precautions and guidelines to fight against the Coronavirus. Along the way, we hope the anticipation of staging the Masters Tournament in the fall brings a moment of joy to the Augusta community and all those who love the sport. We want to emphasize that our future plans are incumbent upon favorable counsel and direction from health officials. Provided that occurs and we can conduct the 2020 Masters, we intend to invite those professionals and amateurs who would have qualified for our original April date and welcome all existing ticket holders to enjoy the excitement of Masters week,” said Fred Riley, the Chairman of the Augusta National Golf Club.
