Private jets ease concerns ahead of imminent PGA return

Must read

Use of a sponsor’s private jets is easing some concerns for Australia’s top golfers about returning to play on the PGA Tour next month amid the coronavirus crisis in the US.

But reports suggest players, caddies, tournament officials and tour employees will be asked to undergo coronavirus tests before travelling and will be subject to at least two tests on site at each event.

Former world No.1 Jason Day and five-time tour winner Marc Leishman admit they have hesitations but will lean on mutual sponsor NetJets for private planes to travel to and from tournaments.

More than 35 PGA Tour players endorse the private plane company including Day, Leishman and fellow Australian Cameron Smith.

“We’re very lucky to be able to fly private, so that’s at least one area I don’t have to worry about,” said Day from Ohio.

Adam Scott, currently in Australia, can use his own plane but may have to quarantine in the US for 14 days before playing his first tournament.
