The annual rite of spring for golf won't happen this year. The Masters has been postponed until a later date. Augusta National did not indicate when the Masters would be played.

The PGA Tour already canceled the next three events leading up to the Masters. Tiger Woods was to be going after his sixth green jacket. (AP Photo/Matt Slocum, File)
