Marathon Classic now scheduled for Aug. 6-9

The adjusted schedule allows the Tour to add a new three-day event with the LPGA Drive On Championship, which will be held July 31 to Aug. 2 at Inverness Club.

SYLVANIA, Ohio — The Marathon Classic has officially been scheduled for Aug. 6 through Aug. 9 as the LPGA Tour announced it will resume its 2020 season at the end of July.

The Marathon LPGA Classic had been scheduled to take place July 23 through July 26 due to the coronavirus, but has accommodated the LPGA request to shift its dates.

The Classic, which is one of the longest-running events on the LPGA Tour and held at Highland Meadows Golf Club, will be allowed to have spectators on-site following recent approval from Gov. Mike DeWine.
