‘Bubble’ for golf events eyed

Games and Amusements Board golf consultant Oliver Gandisclosed on Thursday that plans for local golf tournaments, particularly those of the Philippine Golf Tour (PGT), will happen via a bubble.

Gan confirmed in the online Usapang Sports Forum of the Tabloid Organization in Philippine Sports that the PGT is eyeing the bubble setup, an isolation zone with strict rules similar to that of the National Basketball Association for its season to push through amid the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic.

"There is a proposal from the Philippine Golf Tour in which our professional golfers will be stationed in one hotel, and then they have another proposal for a transportation service that will bring them to the golf course," Gan said.
