Next month's Blue Bay LPGA event in Hainan, China will not take place.

The LPGA said on Wednesday the plan is to return to China for the same event in 2022. The event was not held last season as the world began to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic in late January 2020, when the LPGA decided not to play tour events overseas.

"Given the current health concerns and significant travel restrictions put in place due to COVID-19, the 2021 Blue Bay LPGA, originally scheduled for May 13-16, is canceled further to the guidance of our partners, the China Golf Association, and will return to the schedule in its usual spring date in 2022," the LPGA said in a statement. "We thank Hainan Greentown Blue Bay, the China Golf Association, CLPGA and IMG for all their efforts and very much look forward to returning to Hainan in 2022."
