The Buick LPGA Shanghai will not take place this year due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, the LPGA announced on Tuesday evening.

The tournament was originally for the 14th-17th Scheduled for October and partially organized by the China Golf Association. It is the second season in a row that the LPGA will not travel to China due to the pandemic.

Another tournament on the LPGA’s Fall Asian Swing, the LPGA Taiwan Championship, had already been canceled, along with another Chinese event scheduled for last May, the Blue Bay LPGA.

The Buick LPGA Shanghai debuted in 2018 and has only been played twice. Danielle Kang won both times.

The PGA Tour will compete against the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai from October 28th to 31st.
