We finally may have the green in sight when it comes to the return of live sports and sports wagering. Many industry insiders felt golf betting would be the first sport available for legal online sportsbooks in the U.S. It looks like they may be correct.

According to Golf Digest’s Brian Wacker, the PGA will formally announce that their season will resume beginning on June 11th through the 14th at the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. Sources also confirm to Wacker that due to health and safety guidelines, multiple tournaments will not likely include a fan gallery. However, that doesn’t have a definitive timetable in place.

Both DraftKings and FanDuel Sportsbook have already begun to take several golf-related bets, including for multiple upcoming Major Tournaments such as The Masters as well as for the Ryder Cup, Solheim Cup and The Presidents Cup.

Here’s what the updated schedule will look like according to Golf Digest:

The PGA Tour was projected to be the first of the major sports to re-open amidst the CoronaVirus pandemic. Golf naturally allows for an ability to maintain and practice social distancing as well as the individual nature of the sport. Golfers will likely have to receive frequent testing to remain on tour.
