In the wake of flooding that has buried The Greenbrier Resort under 3 feet of mud, the PGA Tour is assessing the feasibility of holding The Greenbrier Classic, which is scheduled for July 7-10.

The Tour issued this statement on Friday:

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of West Virginia during this state of emergency. While we assess the damage to The Greenbrier Resort to determine the feasibility of holding The Greenbrier Classic the week after next, the obvious priority is with the safety of that community and its recovery efforts. We will share an update on the status of the event in the next few days.”

NBC News reported Friday evening that 20 people have died, while hundreds of thousands remain without power.
