"The original plan is what we're with right now [with] 40,000 to 45,000 spectators on site per day. Right now, that's what we're planning for. Obviously, the Professional Golfers' Association (PGA) of America and Kohler Company, we're going to adhere to state and local guidelines and recommendations.

There's a lot of golf tournaments to be played between now and late September, including the PGA Championship, which is in May down at Kiawah. We have the opportunity...to learn a lot along the way, and as things change and evolve, for us to pivot.

But as of right now, that's what we're hoping for, full attendance and full corporate hospitality", O'Reilly said to Yahoo Sports.
