The 2020 Taiwan Swinging Skirts LPGA has joined the list of the tour’s events canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The announcement came two days after the Buick LPGA Shanghai was also canceled due to health concerns and travel restrictions.

“Further to the advice of the Taiwan Government and GAROC, and with the significant travel restrictions put in place due to the coronavirus, the LPGA along with our tournament partners, has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Taiwan Swinging Skirts LPGA, scheduled October 29 – Nov 1 at Miramar Golf Country Club,” the LPGA said in a statement.

“We are very grateful to Swinging Skirts, the Sports Administration, Ministry of Education, GAROC and IMG for all their hard work in trying to make the 2020 tournament happen. While we are disappointed we cannot play this year, both Swinging Skirts and the LPGA are fully committed to returning in 2021 for the Taiwan Swinging Skirts LPGA.

The LPGA returned to action three weeks ago following a five-month hiatus caused by the pandemic.

American Danielle Kang won the first two events held in the Toledo, Ohio, area. However, many of the top international players opted to skip traveling to the United States, instead focusing on returning for this week’s Ladies Scottish Open and next week’s AIG Women’s Open in Scotland.
