The following statement has been issued by the PGA Tour:
Due to the continuing aftermath of Tuesday's horrific tragedies, the PGA TOUR has cancelled the World Golf Championships-American Express Championship in St. Louis, Mo., the Tampa Bay Classic presented by Buick in Tampa, Fla., the SENIOR PGA TOUR's Vantage Championship in Winston-Salem, N.C., and the BUY.COM Oregon Classic in Eugene, Ore. The events will not be rescheduled.
"The PGA TOUR and its members on all three TOURs, out of respect for the victims and their families of Tuesday's terrorist actions and in recognition of a national day of mourning to occur later this week, have determined that the best course of action is to refrain from playing our normal PGA TOUR schedule this week. In particular, American Express, our sponsor of the American Express Championship in St. Louis and headquartered in lower Manhattan, has been directly affected by this tragedy and all of our players and staff send our heartfelt condolences and prayers to all victims and their families," said PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem.
