CASPER, Wyo. (Casper (Wyo.) Star-Tribune) — Wyoming's 2020 Shrine Bowl all-star high school football game has been canceled due to the coronavirus.

Executive director Frank Selby said he couldn't ask for local businesses to support while they're reeling from closures due to the coronavirus. He says it's also unclear whether it would be safe to hold the game.

This year's game, the 47th in the annual series, was scheduled for June 13 in Casper. The rosters were announced in January.

Money for sponsorships and program ads from businesses along with game and banquet ticket sales will will be refunded within 30 days.

Golf will only have three major championships at the most this year. The R&A announced it is canceling the British Open in July because of the spread of COVID-19. It is pushing the British Open back one year and staying at Royal St. George's.

It's the first time the British Open is not being played since 1945 because of World War II. By keeping it at Royal St. George's, the R&A assures the 150th Open will be at St. Andrews in 2022.

Other organizations are expected to announce the PGA Championship moving to August, the U.S. Open to September and the Masters to November.
