One of the cornerstones of the PGA Tour’s plan to return to competition next month will be the chartered flights from one tournament to the next for players and caddies. On Friday, the circuit unveiled its guidelines for those flights.

In a memo sent to players, the Tour stressed that the “use [of the charter flights] by players and caddies is strongly encouraged,” and that players will be required to take a COVID-19 saliva test prior to boarding the flight.

The tests will be given following the third round for PGA Tour and Korn Ferry Tour players, and “only players who test negative for the Coronavirus will be allowed to board the flight, with no exceptions.
