Australian Open officials had been working on finding a November slot for the world's fifth oldest national championship. However, Golf Australia operations manager Simon Brookhouse announced Monday that the event will not happen in 2020, though he would not rule out a move to early next year.

However, it must be noted that there are many unknowns at the moment, which is problematic.”

While Brookhouse stated the main reason for postponement was health concerns surrounding COVID-19, he added that the Masters Tournament's move to Nov. 12-15 complicated matters.

“Unfortunately, it is not a simple matter of whether or not we could coordinate any international stars to visit," he said. "The uncertainty of the quarantine requirements for any players coming from outside Australia needed to be considered. These requirements would undoubtedly have an impact on our homegrown heroes before they would be able to consider playing, too.”

If the Australian Open is played between January and March, it will remain at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia. Australia's Matt Jones is the defending champion, winning last year in Sydney.
