Floods force Greenbrier Classic cancellation


Severe flooding throughout West Virginia has forced the PGA Tour to cancel next month's Greenbrier Classic.

Days of torrential rain have caused chaos in the area with 23 people killed and huge damage as a result.

The course which hosts the tournament, The Old White TPC, which is located in Greenbrier County, suffered huge damage due to the flooding and Tour officials have confirmed it will not be repaired in time for the tournament's scheduled start date of July 7th.

"We are heartbroken by the devastation that the residents of West Virginia are experiencing at this time and the reports of lives lost due to the terrible flooding," PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said.

"Cancelling the Greenbrier Classic is certainly the most prudent course of action, as our foremost concern is the well-being of those who are having to live through this tragic situation. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.

"We know we will have the opportunity to return again next year and we look forward to that time," he added.

"But for now, that is of secondary concern. The priority is safety of the residents and their recovery from this disaster."
