The Masters Tournament, golf’s first major tournament of the year, will be postponed in the wake of the coronavirus, Augusta National officials announced Friday morning.

The year’s first major championship, which was scheduled for April 9-12, is the fifth event on the PGA Tour schedule that will not be played in its current spot on the schedule, following the cancellation of the remainder of the Players Championship, Valspar Championship in Palm Harbor, Florida, WGC-Dell Match Play Championship in Austin, Texas, and Valero Texas Open in San Antonio.
