The Senior LPGA Championship became the latest event canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The tournament was set to be played July 30-Aug. 1 at French Link Resort in Indiana. The tournament will be played at the same site in 2021 with dates to be announced later, the LPGA said.

"These legendary players deserve nothing less than a first-class Championship, and with the current circumstances, our first and foremost concern is for the safety and well-being of the players, the sponsors, the spectators and our staff," said Dave Harner, director of golf operations at French Lick Resort. "It has become more and more evident that we would not be able to conduct the event to its usual and deserved standard, therefore, we feel canceling is the best decision."
